When done well, it can really draw in the audience in an intimate way, as the title of the movment suggests. You should email the Krenek archive about it, if you have not already. I probably won’t keep that movement up on my page for too long, but if anyone is interested in hearing another movement and doesn’t mind some 21st century inturuption they should give it a listen. Unfortunately, only one concert was professionally recorded, so that is all I have to offer.
Hello Buzz, Thank you for the link with Krenek’s Suite op. Our website is made possible by displaying online advertisements to our visitors. I’ve just uploaded another movement for the Suite on my myspace page. However, I must explain something first.
It’s no coincidence that the Suite for mandolin and guitar is full guitad baroque-like textures: I find Nunc to be full of more overtly “lyrical” gestures.
If it were not for something that happened during the performance it would be a great audio file.

I have searched the forums and am surprised that there has been no mention of Ernst Krenek’s Suite for mandolin and guitar, op. I respect the Krenek but it doesn’t move me.
Glad to have another Krenek advocate and another recorded version of the piece. One of the students did suute his guitar along, though, and played his Suite for Guitar for him, which he apparently enjoyed. Not only is their performance of the Krenek Suite wonderful but the entire album is fantastic.
Regarding hearing more of our performance: When I try to help students express themselves when learning the Krenek Suite for guitar I sometimes describe it this way, and it seems to help. Yes, it is published by Barenreiter. I have uploaded an audio file of the 3rd movement from a UCLA performances on my myspace music page see: As I said, when I listen to or play the Krenek piece I respect it but it doesn’t move me, as music.
A piece like Nunc and the Suite are good pieces to compare as they are similar in certain ways and different in others. I have only krnek one live performance, an excellent one by Stanley Yates I also have a recording, I believe by Stefano Grandona.
However, I find that in much of Krenek’s guitqr the lyricism is contained within a pretty strict formal framework. This works is a source of musical ideas. I remember listening to Marteau with Norman on guitar way back, and learning the Krenek Suite for guitar. Please consider supporting us by disabling your ad blocker on our website.
I will have to make sure to pick up this one and see if I can talk someone from the local mandolin society into considering this some day. Thanks for this, Buzz.

Indeed a highly interesting work in the mandolin and guitar repertoire. Mark, thank you for your kind words. I feel I have a special connection to this music as giitar instructor and one of my mentors at UCLA, where Gguitar studied classical guitar, was the late Theodore Norman see: Krenke in the early 90’s Ted took some students out to Palm Springs, where Krenek was living before he died.
Maybe it’s his German background maybe not?
I recorded the Suite op. I would say that Krenek is around the level of Hindemith in terms of accessibility. But this works it is far to be a collection of musical quotes: Krehek regret that I passed up on that opportunity. I like very much this language and when I studied this work I was fascinated to find different references to music history every two bars. Obviously, one can discuss the merits or faults of particular works ad nauseum. To this day I reget it.
Just my 2 cents. According to Ted Norman, Krenek composed most of it duite he was staying at his house in L.
