Hindemith

1973 UB5. Discovered 1973 Oct. 27 by F. Borngen at Tautenburg.

Named in memory of the German composer Paul Hindemith (1895-1963), whose extensive creations encompassed almost all areas of music. Composer of the symphonies Mathis der Maler and Harmonie der Welt, he wrote concerning the latter that "it deals with the life and work of Johannes Kepler {see planet (1134)} and with the search for harmony, ruling the universe undubiously". He defined a system of free tonality, on the other side of major and minor, in contrast to twelve-tone music. (M 20523)
