Work Introduction

In either of its versions, the “travel book” is one of Krenek’s most often-performed pieces. The text, which the young composer wrote himself, is also effective without music; it is an atmospheric picture of the Austrian landscape, reflecting Krenek’s love of his homeland and its nature.

It is also a product of the 1920s, when the memories and horrors of World War I were still vivid and when politically engaged, sensitive men such as Krenek already perceived the approaching catastrophe of the Second World War. The compelling music has traces of Schubert, Krenek’s strongest influence during the creative period which produced Op. 62.
