Jenny strikes up! Ernst Krenek: Chamber music with clarinet


Together with teachers from the Krems Music School, the American clarinetist Jenny Maclay will present chamber music works with clarinet by Ernst Krenek. The spectrum ranges from Krenek's early works - he wrote his Serenade, op. 4 as a 19-year-old student - to his Monologue, op. 157 for clarinet solo from 1956. This also reveals a stylistic range of his oeuvre: from late Romanticism and atonality, short flirtations with jazzy rhythms of American popular dances to twelve-tone composition.
