Nobilissima visione
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
By the time he composed Nobilissima visione Hindemith had fallen foul of the Nazi regime, which banned performance of his works and posed a danger to his immediate family. Since 1933 he had been spending increasing amounts of time outside Germany, teaching and performing. He severed his last ties as a German citizen immediately after the premiere of Nobilissima visione, which took place in London. Crossing the German border into Switzerland (not without hindrance from the Nazi customs authorities), he settled there from September 1938 until February 1940, when he emigrated to the USA. If ‘settled’ is the right word—financial pressures dictated several concert tours, to Italy, France, Belgium, Holland and the USA.
