Publicidade

Arnold Franz Walter Schönberg, ou Schoenberg, foi um compositor austríaco de música erudita e criador do dodecafonismo, um dos mais revolucionários e influentes estilos de composição do século XX.

Suas primeiras obras, apesar de ligadas à tradição pós-romântica, já prenunciavam um método composicional inovador, que evoluiu para a atonalidade e, mais tarde, para um estilo próprio, o dodecafonismo. Schönberg foi também pintor e importante teórico musical, autor de Harmonia e Exercícios Preliminares em Contraponto.
