Arnold Schoenberg

If it is art, it is not for all, and if it is for all, it is not art.More Arnold Schoenberg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My work should be judged as it enters the ears and heads of listeners, not as it is described to the eyes of readers.More Arnold Schoenberg [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.

I was never revolutionary. The only revolutionary in our time was Strauss!More Arnold Schoenberg [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 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 [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You cannot expect the Form before the Idea,For they will come into being together.More Arnold Schoenberg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Music is only understood when one goes away singing it and only loved when one falls asleep with it in one's head, and finds it still there on waking up the next morning.More Arnold Schoenberg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Rests always sound well.More Arnold Schoenberg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In Spring! In the creation of art it must be as it is in Spring!More Arnold Schoenberg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Composing is a slowed-down improvisation; often one cannot write fast enough to keep up with the stream of ideas.More Arnold Schoenberg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Great art presupposes the alert mind of the educated listenerMore Arnold Schoenberg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I owe very, very much to Mozart; and if one studies, for instance, the way in which I write for string quartet, then one cannot deny that I have learned this directly from Mozart. And I am proud of it!More Arnold Schoenberg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My music is not modern, it is merely badly playedMore Arnold Schoenberg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If music is frozen architecture, then the potpourri is frozen coffee-table gossip... Potpourri is the art of adding apples to pears…More Arnold Schoenberg [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 [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I find above all that the expression, atonal music, is most unfortunate — it is on a par with calling flying the art of not falling, or swimming the art of not drowning.More Arnold Schoenberg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am the slave of an internal power more powerful than my education.More Arnold Schoenberg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is still plenty of good music to be written in C major.More Arnold Schoenberg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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 [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Lucidity is the first purpose of color in music.More Arnold Schoenberg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
