The three orchestral scores gathered here are certainly among Paul Hindemith's most well-loved works If his style in the 1920's at times had struck listeners as sparse and utilitarian, in Mathis der Maler (from 1934) the musical language is more dramatic and more lyrically approachable than some of his earlier works, as well as more concerned with colour and light. Some years later the frescoes on the life of St Francis of Assisi by another Renaissance painter, Giotto, became the inspiration for Nobilissima Visione. In the final work on this disc, the musical quotes are more overt - and less distant in time. In the Symphonic Metamorphosis - probably his most often performed orchestral work today - Hindemith uses themes by Carl Maria von Weber, but treats them entirely in his own mature manner, producing a largely good-humoured orchestral showpiece. The various qualities in these scores are brought out with typical the flair by the Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra and John Neschling. The team's numerous recordings of Villa-Lobos have met with universal acclaim, and their recently released disc of music by Respighi was called 'the best Roman Trilogy of recent times' in Classic FM Magazine.
