KRENEK, Ernst
b Vienna, 23 August 1900

He studied with Schreker at the Vienna Academy of Music and at Berlin. He married Mahler's daughter, Anna, in 1922. The success of his opera Jonny spielt auf, first produced in 1927, enabled him to live in comfortable independence though it offended Nazi ideals. He stayed in Vienna until the outbreak of war in 1939, then emigrated to America.
