Ernst Krenek: Complete Piano Concertos, Volume Two

Ernst Krenek’s seven piano concertos – four for solo piano, one for two pianos, one with violin and one with organ – form one of the major concerto-series of the twentieth century, but also one of the least familiar. This second instalment in their first complete recording reveals breath-taking bravura writing – in the virtuoso piano technique, the dazzling orchestration and the stylistic integration of serialism and good-natured recollection of Viennese tradition.
