Carefully packed and quickly sent. 201512398 Recognized internationally as one of the greatest modern composers, acknowledged, with Igor Stravinsky, as one of the two most influential figures in contemporary music since Debussy, Arnold Schoenberg to the end of his life continued to provoke an enmity almost unparalleled in the history of music. Why this was so is one of the questions considered in this study of the genesis and development Schoenberg's radical experimental music. Combining musical and historical analysis, and his experience as a professional musician, Charles Rosen sets the "renunciation of tonality' and the major compositions of 1908-13 within their Expressionist context, and then shows how, after the despair of the First World War and his discovery of the twelve-tone technique, Schoenberg sought to reconstitute classical forms from within tonality.
