Hindemith clarinet sonata, works for clarinet, double-bass and piano

“Hearty things from Hindemith’s garden … The tracteurs colourfully and spiritedly trace the herbs and weeds from the master’s little musical garden and prepare the ingredients with humour and finesse…”Hearty things from Hindemith’s garden … The tracteurs colourfully and spiritedly trace the herbs and weeds from the master’s little musical garden and prepare the ingredients with humour and finesse…”

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung FAZ 28.11.1997

“This is an enjoyable, thoroughly successful production in every respect: Rarely recorded works are considered – in the case of “Musikalisches Blumengärtlein” it is even a first recording – which are interpreted with extraordinary care and show all musicians to be masters of their instruments; the recording technique can be considered ideal in its conciseness and fidelity; the imaginative graphic design of the booklet paraphrases Hindemith’s work titles in its own way, and the unnamed author of the booklet text (Christoph Ullrich, editor’s note) adds a touch of humour. editor’s note) contributes a contribution that is as knowledgeable as it is committed and original. One immediately notices the enthusiasm with which all those involved in this production were at work!..”
