The Yale School of Music will explore the legacy of Paul Hindemith (1895–1963) in two concerts on November 21 and 22. Hindemith, an innovative composer and theorist as well as a passionate educator, served on the Yale School of Music faculty 1940–53 and left a legacy of invention and exploration that still characterizes the School’s programs.
The Legacy of Paul Hindemith commemorates sixty years since the composer’s stay in New Haven and fifty years since his death, with a program that presents his own compositions side-by-side with music by his Yale students. The program, which is part of the Yale in New York series, will be presented in New Haven on November 21 and in New York City on November 22; details are below.
