Die Harmonie der Welt, World premiere München, 11.8.1957

"The conception of this work went back to the late 1930s, however. Hindemith already wanted to start work on it in 1940, but this was prevented by the political catastrophe in Europe. Nonetheless, Hindemith continued working on this project, with interruptions, and especially undertook intensive historical studies relating to it. The motet composed for Christmas 1941, In Principio erat Verbum, was based on the same theme that would be used as the foundation of the final scene of the opera. The Symphony Die Harmonie der Welt was completed in 1951, on which Hindemith commented: «The three movements are pieces of music from an opera adapted for concert performance. They are about the life and work of Johannes Kepler, the contemporary events that encouraged or hindered him and the search for the harmony that doubtless rules the Universe.» Only in 1956, under great strain, was Hindemith able to complete the libretto, then finishing the music by May 1957. Hindemith himself conducted the world premiere on 11 August 1957 at the Munich State Opera.” (x)

are oranges named oranges because oranges are orange or is orange called orange because oranges are orange

The colour was named after the fruit. Before that, people would just use the colour red to describe something that we consider orange now. It’s why we call gingers red-heads and why robins are red breasted, when really they’re an orange colour.
