Not for everyone, I suppose, but this is magical. Paul Hindemith conducting his own work. I only once heard it live, in Adelaide, Australia. Bless us all.
One of my favourite pieces of music

Superb music, I had not heard before, though they just could not make music videos back then.
Whatever happened to Johnny Mathis..?
According to his web-site, Scroaty, Johnny Mathis is alive and well and stil touring.
The title of the Hindemith piece means 'Mathias the Painter', after an artist called Matthias Grünewald. The composer's particular skill was in combining tonality with atonality and yet he was able to make the music accessible.
I can hear you yawning, Scroaty!
