Arnold Schönberg 1874-1951

The 12-tone method of composition was developed by Arnold Schoenberg and immortalised by Thomas Mann in his novel Doktor Faustus. Schoenberg was born in Vienna in 1874. His visionary, uncompromising style was to pave the way for modernism and the avant-garde. From 1925 to 1933, Schoenberg directed masterclasses at the Academy of Arts in Berlin. He then emigrated to America and died in Los Angeles in 1951.
