Trio Fantasy, op. 63

Ernst Krenek Edition, Volume 2

Composed at the high point of Ernst Krenek’s so-called neoromantic creative period for the prominent instrumentalists Artur Schnabel, Carl Flesch, and Gregor Piatigorsky, the Trio Fantasy, op. 63 lost favor with its creator soon after the premiere. In the years after this work, Krenek turned to new paths and adopted Schoenberg’s twelve-tone technique. The uninhibited sentimental-romantic sounds of his Trio Fantasy were at variance with Krenek’s newly fashioned artistic self-perception, but enjoy popularity, however, among performers and audiences.
