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.

„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

„... if it is art, it is not for all, and if it is for all, it is not art.“

— Arnold Schoenberg
