Description

Krenek's long life in music began as a conductor in German opera houses, which may explain his prodigious output of original operas (Jonny spielt auf, The Bell Tower, etc.). But his compositions include all instruments, from solo to orchestral, and cover a wide range of influences (neo-classical, 12-tone, neo-romantic, even jazz overtones). Universal Edition proudly presents two of Krenek's Sonates for solo Violin, the first from 1925, at about the time of his divorce from his first wife, Anna Mahler, and the second from 1948, after he had become an American citizen and a university teacher in St. Paul, Minnesota. For advanced performers.

Reviews

"Pfitzner commented that it was a very interesting attempt at composing a long piece without a melody. Strictly speaking this is not quite true as the opening of the last movement is a joyous dance grounded in C major. The Adagio is a magnificent centre piece to the work. The opening two movements are fantasy-like and meander too much for my liking but the work is a tour-de-force for any violinst. This edition is very clear and the bowings and fingerings are most helpful for any violinist who would like to take up the challenge!" Andrew Lorenz (Stringendo Magazine, Volume 36 Number 2 October 2014)
