With this musical setting Hindemith not only allied himself with a key work of dramatic exprtessionism, but must also have been conscious of the fact that the piece was predestined for a musical context that would not only realize the music latent in the text, but would also intensify the "distance from reality", the stylization, and abstraction of the theatrical action as an emphatic, visionary art. "It cries out for music", wrote Otto Walzel in 1919 commenting on the drama "Murderer, Hope of Women" fromOskar Kokoschka.
