Schoenberg: #101

About this playlist

Having started his career in the footsteps of Richard Wagner and Richard Strauss under the tutelage of Alexander von Zemlinsky, Schoenberg proved himself to be an absolute master in the late-Romantic tradition. Yet he felt the strong need to create an abstract language for music in the same way Wassily Kandinsky had done for painting. It led to his first atonal works around 1908 and the invention of his twelve-tone technique around 1921 which leaped music into the 20th century.
