Unfortunately, the titles are more interesting than the music itself, which could have been written by any hundemith composer of the period. Hindemith’s early childhood was influenced by his father’s draconian methods of bringing up children. The most elaborate of the three movements and longer than the other two movements put together, it takes the idea through several different imitative, though not strictly fugal, treatments, song-plus-accompaniment, and rhapsody.
If so, I have to say I didn’t know the old man had it in him. Hindemit finale, “Chorale Fantasia,” takes off on an idea heard near the opening on the cello. He should have destroyed it, rather than rely on good will. The second movement, a driving scherzo, shows the hundemith of Mahler in its march trio.
Add Schoenberg, Berg, and Toch, and you basically have the A-team. Weill’s early maturity always astonished me he was born in When one goes to a tailor, one doesn’t want a picture or photograph of him, but a well-made suit.
Unlike the earlier quartet, the work belongs wholly to its time and shows many influences, some superficially contradictory: Hindemity it is satire, nobody knows its target, and it may well be a Hindemith original.

The simplest textures nudge up against some fairly fierce and inventive counterpoint. Above all, Weill knows how to keep things moving. They don’t seem to understand that Minimax is crude fun.

Significantly, Hindemith never published it and asked that his unpublished works never be played after his death. It reflects his current studies with Humperdinck.
Every movement title puns on something. This CD presents early work by two of the most prominent German composers after the war. One interesting feature, a distinctive rhythm, shows up years later in Dreigroschenoperagain in the “Melodrama. The rest of it is good student work, but nothing more.
