Ernst Krenek (1900-1991): Sechs Motetten nach Worten von Franz Kafka op.169 / Choral Works op.22, 72, 87, 88 & 97
Krenek’s life and work were deeply marked by the traumatic impact of his exile to the USA at the time of the Anchluss. This fundamentally sceptical artist holds up a brutally frank mirror to the society of his day. After a critically acclaimed first disc devoted to his Lamentations of Jeremiah.
