"Would you speculate as to what, in your opinion, will be the reputation of Schönberg in the year 2,000? Will he be primarily thought of as a theorist or as a composer and, if the latter, will his work have found a solid place in the repertoire?"
What kind of answer do you make?
"Opus 19 is certainly one of the linch-pins of history - works more important results they engendered (op.19, I think, is a direct descendent of the Boulezian experiments with timbre, etc.) than for any intrinsic merit they possess."
*An example of Bach's Fuge "WTC1-24":
He was not a born musician or composer. When he was 21 years old, his music career started. In 1908, Schönberg began to establish the 12 tone music and composed some remarkable pieces. Then the Prussian Academy of Arts in Berlin invited him as a professor.
As a Jewish descendant he had to move to another place from Europe. He found the place for live in the United States and worked at the University of California in Los Angeles.
His own works are seldom performed, but now many musicians are applying his 12 tone theory for their music creation.
Some of his major works are :
Transfigured Night; string sextet (1899)
Three Piano Pieces (1909)
Six Little Piano Pieces (1911)
Pierrot Lunaire; 21 recitations with chamber accompaniment (1912)
Suite for Piano (1924)
