Der Geiger Roman Mints veröffentlicht die kompletten Werke für Violine und Klavier sowie die Kleine

“All musicians have particular pieces which hold a special meaning for us: not necessarily our “favourites”, but those which have played a defining or directing role in our lives. For me there is one such piece I have returned to repeatedly over the past 30 years. (…)

I liked to open my concerts with this sonata, finding in it something so personal and close to my heart that it overcame my nerves: I usually feel a bit edgy at the start of a concert. Over the years I decided to learn Hindemith’s other sonatas, as well as the sonata for viola d’amore with its entirely magical second movement. I found the ideal playing partner, my old friend Alexander Kobrin, whose style in this music can’t be bettered. We prepared a programme and played it in many places.” Roman Mints
