About this product
- DescriptionArld Schoenberg completed his Kammersymphonie, Op. 9, in July 1906, singling it out as a true turning point in his compositional style . . . the last work of my first period that existed as a single through-composed movement. To prepare himself for the creation of a one-movement work built on an internal, multi-movement structure, the composer studied the great examples from the classical literature: Beethoven's Grosse Fuge, Liszt's B-mir Sonata, and Schubert's Wanderer Fantasy (itself the study-model for the epic Liszt work).From these roots evolved the multidimensional concept of internal movements that dissolve effortlessly into one ather (here built on less than nineteen themes), the whole supported by an intricate harmonic language a major step in Schoenberg's emancipation of the dissonance. As for its symphonic aspect, the composer regarded that term as a parama where one could indeed regard each image for itself, but in reality these images are securely connected and interwoven. Little wonder that a work so harmonically and structurally provocative for its time and place was to cause an uproar at its 1907 Vienna premiere, stirring an unprecedented outpouring of controversial critiques. Gustav Mahler, however a staunch supporter of Schoenberg, and a true friend publically stood up for the composer's work (although he privately confessed that he could t fully understand Schoenberg's development). Today, however, this seminal music from Schoenberg's early period has become one of his most accessible works.Dover's faithful reproduction of the complete original score of 1922 brings this influential and historically important work to the libraries of all musicians and music lovers fascinated by the extraordinary evolution of musical language in the first decades of the twentieth century. Scored for a chamber ensemble of flute, oboe, English horn, two clarinets, bass clarinet, bassoon, contrabassoon, two horns, two violins, viola, cello, and bass. Instrumentation. Glossary.
