There are not many recordings available of Hindemith's music. Fortunately, this one with Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra is a jewel.
It is a very enjoyable disc and a budget price.
The orchestra plays superbly throughout. The Symphonic Metamorphoses is riveting, from start to end, especially the march, such precision!
The Miraculous Mandarin is excellent too, Ormandy's gives the music an overall coherence and his drive never allows the music to become tedious nor boring and coupled with the orchestra's virtuosity, the piece is simply amazing.
I recommend this disc for anyone looking for an excellent rendering of these pieces at a budget price.
