Work introduction

In 1923, the young Ernst Krenek made a self-confident yet provoking comment on his Symphonische Musik für neun Soloinstrumente, which he had composed for the Donaueschingen Festival: “The structure ... in two movements is very simple and easily understandable to listeners, so I do not think an analysis is necessary.”

The piece was written at a time when Krenek was rejecting the sensuous sound of his teacher, Schreker, and attempting a neo-baroque style.
