Toccata Classics is beginning an extended collaboration with the Ernst Krenek Institut in Krems, Austria, to release a number of recordings of the music of the Austrian-born composer Ernst Krenek (1900–92), who lived the last sixty years of his life in Californian exile.
This first extended survey of Krenek’s piano music opens with his Fourth Sonata of 1948, which revisits the graceful elegance of the First Viennese School in the style of the Second. It continues with the witty George Washington Variations and the first recording of a brief Prelude written for the Swiss patron of music, Werner Reinhart. It concludes with Krenek’s completed version of Schubert’s unfinished Piano Sonata in C major, D840.
The Ukrainian-born Stanislav Khristenko has won top prizes at some of the most prestigious international piano competitions. In 2013 alone he won First Prize at the 2013 Cleveland International Piano Competition, First Prize at the 2013 Maria Canals International Music Competition, and was named Fourth Laureate at the 2013 Queen Elisabeth Competition. His performance highlights include solo recitals in Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall, Schubertsaal in Vienna, Phillips Collection in Washington, and performances with orchestra in Grosser Hall of Berlin Philharmonie, Severance Hall in Cleveland, the Large Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire and Hong Kong City Hall.
