Recordings of Hindemith's viola music date back to those made by the composer himself: the catelogue is full and rich. These wonderful works have yet to be universally embraced, though recently the discography has been swelled by some of his music's remarkable interpretations. Among them are those by Tabea Zimmermann.' John Allison
