Oral History of American Music Collections Guide: Paul Hindemith

OHI: Paul Hindemith Oral History

The Paul Hindemith Oral History is about the celebrated German composer, who fled from Germany to the United States during World War II. Seventy-five interviews with students, performers, colleagues, and friends of Hindemith serve as the prototype for studies of the émigré composer. As with the Ives series, the Hindemith oral history adds a dimension to the Hindemith Collection of papers and manuscripts at the Yale Music Library.
