Hindemith - Violin Sonata N3 E-dur (1935)


Hindemith - Violin Sonata N3 E-dur. You can download the PDF sheet music Hindemith - Violin Sonata N3 E-dur on this page. Hindemith, living in Berlin when he wrote his Sonata in E, in the summer of 1935, was in a way at the heart of the culture. The piece was given its first performance, on 18 February 1936, not in Germany but in Geneva, by a violinist, Stefan Frenkel. Though the first movement begins with a pastoral air, it soon encounters harmonic complication, negotiated by a secure if stretched hold on motivic linkage. There is an exposition that comes to rest on a B major chord, followed by a longer and more widely ranging section that winds back to the opening, and to its interpretation of the consistent 9/8 rhythm as a gentle siciliana. The second movement is a gigue with a slow introduction, except that the introduction keeps breaking back, until its lament theme is fully placed alongside the gigue subject.

The Sonata in E is very far from any sort of 'degeneracy': rather it seems a work of Apollonian clarity and balance of form. There are only two movements. The first of these is a peacefully flowing invention with a beautiful main melody.  This is a prime example of Hindemith's mature style in which even the dissonances contribute to the clarity and direction of a tonality that combines the characteristics of the major and minor modes. The second movement opens with a slow theme that leads to a lively, scherzo-like episode full of dynamic optimism.Then the eloquent theme with which the movement opened is quoted, still within the faster tempo, and the quick music continues for a while before the slow section returns and flows into a coda.
