Wergo presents the first recording of Paul Hindemith's Plöner Musiktag (The Plön Music Day). This educational work has not been heard as a whole since its world premiere in 1932 by the composer himself. It sets a whole day to music in four parts - Morgenmusik, Tafelmusik, Kantate and Abendkonzert - each written for different levels of difficulty and with different instrumentation. Hindemith wrote the work for a four-day stay in a boarding school in Plön, Schleswig-Holstein in June 1932. Renowned baritone Dietrich Henschel and musicians of the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra are led here by Jobst Liebrecht.
