Arnold Schoenberg

Real Name:
Arnold Schönberg
Profile:
Austrian composer and painter, best known as the (putative) innovator of the twelve-tone technique. Leader of the Second Viennese School.
Starting from the exasperated Wagnerian chromatism of the Tristan with the sextet for strings "Verklärte Nacht" Op. 4 of 1899, the symphonic poem "Pelleas und Melisande" Op.5 of 1903 and the cantata "Die Gurrelieder"( 1900-1911), he reached the total decomposition and liquidation of the Tonality and Harmony with the "Three Pieces for Piano" Op 11 of 1909, "Five Pieces for Orchestra" Op 16 (1909) and the "Pierrot Lunaire" (1912).
With the Five Pieces for Piano Op. 23 and the Serenade Op 24 of 1923 Schoenberg organizes the sounds in a rational way, which he defined:
"Method of Composition by means of twelve tones in relation only to each other " called Dodecaphony or" serial music ".
Born 13 September 1874 in Vienna, Austria as Arnold Schönberg, emigrated to the US in 1933 and changed his name to Arnold Schoenberg. He died 13 July 1951 in Los Angeles, California, USA.

For those who might be
curious about the music
of Arnold Schoenberg,
it may be recommended
to consider listening to
the String Trio Op. 45 (1946).

It is regrettable that
many people receive
their exposure to
Arnold Schoenberg
from his piano music,
which is not really very
representative of his
work, nor easy for the
listener.

Arnold Schoenberg was
a string player, and his
string writing's colour
and imagination of sound,
alone, will reward the listener.

With regard to the String Trio,
a recommended performance
would be by:

Erich Rohn : Violin

Ernest Doberitz : Viola

Arthur Troester : Violoncello

And, to you three gentlemen,
to the original pick up by the
American Military Sector
Deutschland Radio,
to the reprocessing by
Ludger Bockenhoff at Audite,
to Arnold Schoenberg, and
to all that made this as it is:

Unto you is set a kiss of beatitude.

This is my great great grandfather.
Listening to twelve-tone music gives me this surreal ultra-personal feeling like being poked in the belly button. It's really difficult to describe.
