Lebhaft / Energisch / Lebhaft, wie früher (17:58) The subtitle "Der Main" translates into "The River Main", set after Friedrich Hölderlin's poem of the same name. The sonata evokes the river's majestic scenery, although it does not utter a direct reference to the poem. The poem's English translation can be found from pages 4 - 5 of the following link: Paul Hindemith (November 16, 1895 – December 28, 1963) was a German composer, violist, violinist, teacher and conductor. Notable compositions include his song cycle Das Marienleben (1923) and opera Mathis der Maler (1938). February 4, 2013 - Jordan First Edition Score C. Gamboa, piano
