Casey Tecklenburg Contemporary Music History Program Notes --- Hindemith Paul Hindemith is considered to be one of the most influential German composers of the 20 th century. His works are often described as part of a neo- classical movement in response to the romanticism of the 19 th century. In actuality, the influences recognized in Hindemith’s works demonstrate a style that seems more specifically neo-Baroque. The works of composers like Johan Sebastian Bach and Anton Bruckner influenced Hindemith’s writing, especially in their use of counterpoint and fugue style. Hindemith’s works are not considered to be without tonality, but they do demonstrate features of non-diatonic composition. His compositions cover a vast scope of musical genres and ensemble types. They exhibit orchestration and instrumentation that are experimental in nature, and helped to redefine the capabilities of the instruments scored. His exceptional musicianship led him to become a great conductor in addition to his work as a composer.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
