The chamber music works are among Hindemith's most successful instrumental works of the 1920s. At the world premiere of Chamber Music No. 1, the audience even demanded a repetition of the third and fourth movements. But the title is misleading: The individual pieces rather bear concertante and soloistic markings than bow to chamber music traditions. Chamber Music No. 6 focuses on the viola d'amore which, despite its virtuoso handling, is challenged by a few individual instruments separated from the orchestral setting.The scores are based on Volume IV/3 (PHA 403) of the Hindemith Complete Edition edited by Giselher Schubert.
