Arnold Schönberg, ou Arnold Schoenberg est un compositeur, peintre et théoricien autrichien né le 13 septembre 1874 à Vienne, et mort le 13 juillet 1951 à Los Angeles. Deux siècles après Jean-Sébastien Bach et Jean-Philippe Rameau, qui avaient posé les fondements de la musique tonale, il chercha à émanciper la musique de la tonalité et inventa le dodécaphonisme, qui aura une influence marquante sur une part de la musique du XXe siècle.
