My Account
The works of Modern Austrian-American composer Ernst Krenek (1900-91) invoke many styles of 20th century music. Born in Vienna, he studied with Austrian composer Franz Schreker and conducted in several small German theaters. He was briefly Mahler's son-in-law. The Anschluss drove him from Austria and he became a United States citizen, teaching at Vassar College and Hamline University, Saint Paul, Minnesota before settling in Palm Springs, California.
