Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ernst Krenek was an Austrian and, from 1945, American composer. He explored atonality and other modern styles and wrote a number of books, including Music Here and Now, a study of Johannes Ockeghem, and Horizons Circled: Reflections on my Music.
