"Here is a warm and brilliant study of Schoenberg by one of the foremost musical figures in present-day Germany. The author tells why the composer has created a major impression on the musical consciousness of the world and how this is achieved in his works. Two epochal events in the history of modern music are due to him. It was Schoenberg who revealed the way to the land of music without key-feeling, and with it unveiled a world of new sounds. Also, he derived, from the historically developed law of twelve-note music, a comprehensive technique of composition. His ability to discover the colour extremes of each instrument helped in the pioneering of new musical expression. The author relates the enraged attitudes of the reactionary circle of Vienna to the composer's initial works. He traces with careful and straightforward analysis the progress and nature of Schoenberg's compositions. Works such as Gurrelieer, Pelleas und Melisande, Ewartung, Pierrot Lunaire, Kol Nidre, and A Survivor from Warsaw, as well as many others are studied in terms of history, theory, aesthetics, and influence. The influences that helped fashion the artist are graphically described here: the Vienna in the first decade of the twentieth century where the architect Adolf Loos was leading a revolution in style, the young artist Kokoschka was exploring the psychological depths of his subjects in his portraits, and Freud had already developed his psychology. Of major importance in the city was the composer Mahler, whose presence helped strengthen the growth of a revolution in music."--Dust jacket
