Ernst Krenek is sadly, one of the most ignored mid 20th century composers. This recording is brilliant from start to finish. The oboe performance by Mr. Ostryniec is near heroic, as this is a very difficult piece to play.

And the recording quality is amazing. The soundstage is huge, and the placement of the musicians within it is almost to spooky. It just goes to show what can be done, even on archaic (by today's standards) equipment and a great recording engineer.
