At the Festival "Musik im 20. Jahrhundert" of the Saarländischen Rundfunk in 1998 Kronenberg's Nachtstück for piano solo was given its premiere performance. Other performances followed such as at the Columbia University in New York. In the same year he participated in a composition-workshop with Luciano Berio.
He received an even bigger public attention after winning the international piano competition "Johann Sebastian Bach" in Saarbrücken in 1998. A year later, he received the special prize at the Wartburg piano competition in Eisenach. Yorck Kronenberg was initially a member, pianist and temporarily conductor of the Ensemble Neue Musik Lübeck, which performed in October 1999 his orchestral composition Ellipse. He has participated in numerous broadcast productions and appeared in various festivals. With the SWR-Rundfunkorchester Kaiserslautern under Paul Goodwin, he played several times (up to 2004-2005 season) the piano concertos of Karl Amadeus Hartmann and Igor Stravinsky. Yorck Kronenberg is also active as a novelist.
In 2002 Edition Nautilus published his debut roman Welt unter (world under), noted by the Neue Zürcher Zeitung: "Yorck Kronenberg succeeded with his first work a quite delightful, allusion-rich Nocturne." His narration Gegenlicht (back light) appeared in 2005 in the Anthology "Wieder vereinigt - Neue Deutsche Liebesgeschichten" of the publishing house Klaus Wagenbach. http://www.yorck-kronenberg.de/ Read more on Last.fm.
