Catalogue Number: 07Q076
Description: First recording of the complete score of the ballet for choreographer and dancer Léonide Massine depicting incidents in the life of St. Francis of Assisi. Composed in 1936, Visione is one of Hindemith's most lyrical, elegiac and, at points, majestic scores and it is very well-recorded in its three-movement "suite" version. Now you can have the full 44-minute score! Seattle Symphony; Gerard Schwarz.
