DESCRIPTION:
A concise biographical study of the life and work of Anton von Webern. The book explores the idea that modern music is obscure by setting Webern's technical advances against the Romantic inheritance of 19th century Austro-Germany. The text traces the development of Webern and his music. Born into the aristocratic, musical heritage of Vienna, Webern launched his career at the University at the turn of the century. He became interested in Renaissance vocal music, and this early interest influenced his compositions throughout his life. As Schoenberg's pupil, he became a follower of the 12-note technique, and combined this with his love of chamber music to create his own sound. Despite a prolific rate of composition in his early years, Webern's musical output is small and tends towards brevity. He was accidently shot and killed in the Allied occupation of Austria. This text is part of the 20th-century composers series, examining composers in a biographical context, and offering a comprehensive study of key figures in the creation of 20th-century music. None of the books in the series presume a knowledge of specialized terms or musical notation. Each book in the series features a list of works, a bibliography, and a discography.
