Work Introduction

Alma Modie is the dedicatee of this work, according to the score and UE’s website. Thanks to composer Berchtold Goldschmidt’s recollections of the concerto’s world premiere and the interview afterward with Modie in the green room (recorded in 1995), we know that this juvenile composition harbours a portrait of the violinist and her relationship with Krenek, who was 24 at the time. Thus the piece is a very personal one in which the composer symbolises himself with first the clarinet and later the trumpet.
