Anton von Webern

Anton von Webern

By Malcolm Hayes

A compelling look at the life and work of the Austrian composer.

Anton von Webern (1883-1945) was born into the aristocratic, musical heritage of Vienna. An early passion for Renaissance vocal music haunts his compositions, but as a result of his studies with Arnold Schoenberg he became a disciple of the 12-note technique which he used to create a sound that came to characterize his style. Tragically killed during the Allied occupation of Austria, he remains a profound influence on musicians of subsequent generations.
