Ernst Krenek (1900-1991): Piano Music, Volume One
This first extended survey of the piano music of Ernst Krenek (1900–91) opens with his Fourth Sonata of 1948, which revisits the graceful elegance of the First Viennese School in the style of the Second. It continues with the witty George Washington Variations and the first recording of a brief Prelude written for the Swiss patron of music, Werner Reinhart, and concludes with Krenek’s completed version of Schubert’s unfinished Piano Sonata in C major, d840.
