Tabea Zimmermann commemorates the 50th anniversary of death of Paul Hindemith with the recording of his complete works for viola. Hindemith is regarded as a key composer for the instrument and has been a famous violist himself who premiered the viola concertos by Darius Milhaud and William Walton. Vol. 2 of the edition includes the complete sonatas for solo viola and for viola and piano. Ordered by their creation date on this double album, the seven compositions give an impressive insight of Hindemith's development as a composer, from the early works of the year 1919 to the mature and epic sonatas of the late 1930's.
