Paul HindemithAmong the many musical treasures left to me by Engelbert Brenner, I have a wall in my music studio lined with autographed photos of famous musicians, conductors & composers from the 20th century.

Here is a photograph of legendary composer Paul Hindemith. In addition to his autograph for Brenner, he hand-wrote the opening bars of his oboe sonata (written in 1938).

Wow! That’s a great picture! Although he does look a bit scary!

What an awesome treasure. I actually started work on that piece this past week, so now when I practice I’m going to see that hint of a smirk on his face.
