What connects an autographed Hindemith score with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland?


April’s object of the month is a copy of Paul Hindemith’s Wir Bauen eine Stadt (1930), songs composed for children and given its world premiere in Glasgow in November 1930.  Our archive contains the score used by pianist and composer Erik Chisholm (a former student of the Conservatoire) who accompanied the Orpheus Junior Choir (now the Phoenix Choir).  The composer himself performed a number of sonatas with Chisholm earlier in the evening; his dedication in the score reads: ‘with hearty thanks for the beautiful introduction to Glasgow’ – Paul Hindemith Nov. 30 [1930].

Zum 144. Geburtstag von Leo Blech (21.04.1871-20.08.1958)


Leo Blech (21 April 1871 – 25 August 1958) was a German opera composer and conductor who is perhaps most famous for his work at the Königliches Opernhaus (later the Berlin State Opera / Staatsoper Unter den Linden) from 1906 to 1937, and later as the conductor of Berlin's Städtische Oper from 1949 to 1953. Blech was known for his reliable, clear, and elegant performances, especially of works by Wagner, Verdi, and Bizet's Carmen (which he conducted over 600 times), and for his sensitivity as an accompanist.
