Snapshot


English    Deutsch    


Between 1945 and 1967 Bernhard Krol was a horn player with leading orchestras, including the Berlin Philharmonic and the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra * Studied with Schoenberg's disciple, Josef Rufer in Vienna * However, Krol uses the tonal system, looking back towards composers such as Reger or Hindemith * His music is characterized by a freshness of music-making, marked rhythms and, as he once said, 'heaven's gift of the beauty of sound' * Varied classical models as in his Figaro Metamorphoses on three motifs of a canzona from Mozart's opera, or his cheerful Fledermaus Variations in which he transforms Strauss's themes into a completely new musical structure * Numerous works for solo instruments and orchestra

Works by Bernhard Krol include:
Fledermaus-Variationen for orchestra op.60 (1974)
Figaro-Metamorphosen for horn and string orchestra op.61 (1977)
Messa da Sinfonietta for chorus, organ and string orchestra op.64 (1977)
