One of the greatest composers of the 20th century. He has played on every instrument he wrote for. His works include Symphonic Metamorphosis and many other orchestral pieces. His most famous piece of work was the Symphony in Bb. It consists of 3 movements and is regarded by many as the greatest piece of band literature ever devised. Many people who listen to Symphony in Bb will think it is some sort of "circus of doom". Only musicians really truly appreciate the work Hindemith has done.
The Paul Hindemith Symphony in Bb is the hardest piece of music ever!!! Playing it right is the greatest thing you can ever do as a musician.
