Hindemith, Hartmann and Henze
The composers who dominated the mainstream development of German music.Twentieth-century German music has been characterized by its extreme diversity. A central mainstream has been dominated, however, by the work of Paul Hindemith (1895-1963), Karl Amadeus Hartmann (1905-63) and Hans Werner Henze (b. 1926).
