A Musical Diary from an Austrian Journey
Krenek's "Travel Diary from the Austrian Alps"
Martin Vácha (baritone), Ines Schüttengruber (piano) und Eva Maria Stöckler (moderation) performed Ernst Krenek's "Reisebuch aus den österreichischen Alpen" at the Festspiele Südtirol in Toblach.
Toblach 2016

During his entire life, Austrian-American composer Ernst Krenek (1900-1991) had always interested himself in traveling - also due to his exile in the United States. He especially enjoyed the mountains, but above all he loved South Tyrol, a region to which he devoted numerous texts. Those texts have also recently been a part of a musical-literary evening at the Toblach South Tyrol Festival on September 8, 2016. Pianist Ines Schüttengruber and baritone Martin Vácha performed Ernst Krenek's "Reisebuch aus den österreichischen Alpen", a musical memoir about his travels through Austria in 1929. Eva Maria Stöckler, Head of the Center for Contemporary Music at the Danube University Krems, and member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Ernst Krenek Insitut Privatstiftung read texts of "the writer," Ernst Krenek. This very special place is also where Gustav Mahler (the father of his first wife Anna) once retreated and worked.
