Krenek: Lamentatio Jeremiae Prophetae / Gronostay

Album Summary

>Krenek, Ernst : Lamentatio Jeremiae prophetae, Op. 93
Conductor Ensemble Composer


Choral Dodecaphony
Krenek wrote this masterpiece during the war years with no expectation that it would ever be performed. But the Dutch singing masters on this recording sing it with a purity of tone and intonation, and a serenity that is intensely moving. There is a good version as well on Harmonia Mundi; but the Dutch version is incomparable. If you can get it, get it.
