Arnold Schönberg created a new compositional system in which a work is built from a predetermined set of twelve tones, the twelve notes that form the chromatic scale. This program presents this revolutionary system in the making, through the work of his pupils, Berg and Webern. It then culminates in Schönberg’s more dissonant Phantasy. It is interesting to then listen immediately afterwards to Schönberg’s Verklarte Nacht, an earlier work which stretches the limits of tonality. The causes and consequences of this revolutionary writing are complex. The shocking aesthetics of the works are the result of a profound artistic search in the midst of a critical time in history, surrounded by violence, war, and the exaltation of a set of values that were corrupting the human soul.
