Serialism – Schoenburg – Variations for Orchestra, Op. 31 (1928)

Picture

Did a bit of background reading about Serialist music and listened to Shoenburg’s Variations for Orchestra. If I ever learn to appreciate Shoenburg’s music, I think it will be a long time coming, probably in a distant lifetime or in another dimension. I guess technical analysis of the music might yield some appreciation of what Shoenburg was trying to achieve, if not pleasure from the experience of casually listening to it.
