He demonstrates how Schoenberg\'s musical language (including the much misunderstood twelve-note method), his personal character, and his creative ideas are indissolubly linked, as is his genius as a teacher and as an original composer. He also examines virtually every work in the oeuvre to demonstrate its vitality and many-sidedness. A chronology of Schoenberg\'s life, a work-list, an updated bibliography, and a much-expanded personalia enhance the usefulness of this new edition.\"--book jacket.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
