About this product
- DescriptionArld Schoenberg is widely regarded as one of the most significant and invative composers of the twentieth century. It is commonly assumed that Schoenberg's music divides into three periods: tonal, atonal, and serial. It is also assumed that Schoenberg's atonal music made a revolutionary break with the past, particularly in terms of harmonic structure. This book challenges both these popular tions. Haimo argues that Schoenberg's 'atonal' music does t constitute a distinct unified period. He demonstrates that much of the music commonly described as 'atonal' did t make a complete break with prior practices, even in the harmonic realm, but instead transformed the past by a series of incremental changes. An important and influential contribution to the field, Haimo's findings help t only to re-evaluate Schoenberg, but also to re-date much of what has been defined as one of the most crucial turning points in music history.
