Summary "Arnold Schoenberg - composer, theorist, teacher, painter, and one of the most important and controversial figures in twentieth-century music. This Companion presents engaging essays by leading scholars on Schoenberg's central works, writings, and ideas over his long life in Vienna, Berlin, and Los Angeles. Challenging commonly held views of the composer as an isolated elitist, the volume examines his engagement with contemporary artistic, social, and political developments. Chapters cover Schoenberg's musical works, theoretical texts, published and unpublished essays, letters, and projects, and consider his influence on other composers and writers over the last century."--BOOK JACKET.
