Grammy for Hindemith recording with Midori (January 2014)
The NDR Sinfonieorchester under Christoph Eschenbach were awarded a Grammy Award 2014 in the category “Best Classical Compendium” for their recording of Hindemith’s Violin Concerto – with Violinist Midori as soloist –, the Symphonic Metamorphosis and Konzertmusik for brass and strings, Op. 50.
Midori comments: “I am delighted that Christoph Eschenbach and the NDR Symphony Orchestra invited me to play Hindemith’s Violin Concerto as part of their CD tribute to Paul Hindemith, and am very happy that last night this recording won the Grammy for Best Classical Compendium. Hindemith is one of the musicians I respect and admire the most. I hope our recording brings more awareness and appreciation of this great artist.”
The CD was published in August 2013 on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Paul Hindemith’s death on the Ondine label.
