Schoenberg Listening Journal

- No clear tonality
- Difficult to tell, but maybe triple simple meter
-Moderato-ish tempo
- Incredible amount of dissonance
- Playing style is erratic in nature, not sure if intened or interpreted
-Performed by Piano and Full orchestra, but do not work in conjunction
-Polyphonic at every point

-Strophic structure, not really having clear motif or idea to come back to, simply a musical progression with no repetition
-Makes sense, as the very essence of 12-tone composition is to avoid similarity/repetition

-Composed by Arnold Shoenberg
- One of many 12-tone pieces composed by him
- Composed during impressionist period
