Hindemith's Symphonic Metamorphosis

11/16/12 9:00AM By Walter Parker

We'll celebrate a pair of anniversaries with one piece.  Hindemith's birthday prompts his Symphonic Metamorphosis on Themes of Weber.  We'll hear it played by the Philadelphia Orchestra, which gave its first concert on this date in 1900.
