Way better than Schoenberg, don't deny it.

Shocked


TinyMontgomery

I wouldn't say way better but I'd say that both of them kick Berg's ass.
Webern sadly didn't have time to compose enough to have a range of compositions as fascinating as Schoenberg's.

When do we discuss whether a louse is better than a flea?


TinyMontgomery

I think a flea can put on a much better show. Never really could relate to louses.

I think Webern might have been a tad too meticulous, or fastidius, or something, to write very much. I understand his output in terms of measures per hour was very low.

I love Berg's Violin Concerto.

Here's part of Schoenberg's:

Berg's opera "Wozzeck" was staged in America thanks to Gershwin's financial support. Gershwin lost a heap of money because of that.

The music of Gershwin's opera "Porgy and Bess" was heavily influenced by "Wozzeck," or at least that's what Christopher Reynolds says.

Ever see Woyzeck movee with Klaus Kinski? Good good fun.

Klaus Kinski is probably the best possible actor to play Woyzeck:

But wasn't this thread supposed to be about Webern?
