Arnold Schoenberg

Arnold Schoenberg

Austrian composer and painter, associated with the expressionist movement in German poetry and art, and leader of the Second Viennese School
I never was very capable of expressing my feelings or emotions in words. I don't know whether this is the cause why I did it in music and also why I did it in painting. Or vice versa: That I had this way as an outlet. I could renounce expressing something in words.More Arnold Schoenberg quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have never seen faces, but because I have looked people in the eye, only their gazes.More Arnold Schoenberg quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In fact, the influence of Schoenberg may be overwhelming on his followers, but the significance of his art is to be identified with influences of a more subtle kind-not the system, but the aesthetic, of his art. I am quite conscious of the fact that my Chansons mad├ęcasses are in no way Schoenbergian, but I do not know whether I ever should have been able to write them had Schoenberg never written.More Arnold Schoenberg quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Although our "gentle air" cannot improve the way hate and envy look, it does seem not to encourage firmness and decision. All is compromise; caution and refinement are everywhere. Everything has to "make a good impression" - whether or not it is any good: the impression is the main thing.More Arnold Schoenberg quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My music is not modern, it is merely badly playedMore Arnold Schoenberg quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
