Felix Petyrek: Missa phrygica

Felix Petyrek

Missa phrygica

1949

Description

Besides Ernst Krenek and the Czech composer, Alois Hába, Felix Petyrek (1892–1951) was one the most important pupils who studied under Franz Schreker in the latter's early composition classes in Vienna. In his Missa phrygica, written in 1949 for four to eight voices (it can be performed by a choir with soloists/small choir), Petyrek employs elements of vocal polyphony from the Renaissance and early Baroque in a very personal, modern contrapuntal fashion. However, the brightness of the splendid sonority in both the Gloria and Credo, obtained essentially through the use of chains of parallel fifths, shows the influence of his teacher, Franz Schreker.
