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
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 madécasses 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]
