Early Childhood

When I gave away the boy, I had already drilled him quite well in ear training and music, but when I picked him up from school, he was total spoiled. It does nothing for his currently low reputation and isn’t fair to the “real” music he wrote during the same year, like the Fourth String Quartet and Das Marienleben.


If so, I have to say I didn’t know the old man had it in him. Some cookies on this site are essential, and the site won’t work as expected without them. They don’t seem to understand that Minimax is crude fun.

Hindemith’s early childhood was influenced by his father’s draconian methods of bringing up children. Above all, Weill knows how to keep things moving.

Significantly, Hindemith never published it and asked that his unpublished works never hindeith played after his death.

The simplest textures nudge up against some fairly fierce and inventive counterpoint. The first movement, an “Introduction,” foreshadows the “Melodrama” of Die Dreigroschenoper.
