Arnold Schönberg

Date de naissance: 13. septembre 1874
Date de décès: 13. juillet 1951


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.

Citations Arnold Schönberg

„Market value is irrelevant to intrinsic value.“

— Arnold Schoenberg
Context: Market value is irrelevant to intrinsic value. … Unqualified judgment can at most claim to decide the market-value — a value that can be in inverse proportion to the intrinsic value. "An Artistic Impression" (1909) in Style and Idea (1985), p. 190

„I see the work as a whole first. Then I compose the details.“

— Arnold Schoenberg
Context: I see the work as a whole first. Then I compose the details. In working out, I always lose something. This cannot be avoided. There is always some loss when we materialize. But there is compensating gain in vitality. As quoted in an interview with José Rodriguez (c. 1936) in Schoenberg‎ (1971) by Merle Armitage, p. 149
