No feeling is more closely associated with music than love. No composer is more often associated with rational and anti-emotional music than Arnold Schönberg. For the first time, the Arnold Schönberg Center will utilize a curatorial approach for Schönberg’s scores, which are permeated with an abundance of emotions, explore contexts, and open up points of reference for a language of novel sounds about love in musical Modernism around 1900. Love songs, symphonic poems, and programmatic ensemble pieces are juxtaposed with private messages, literary and pictorial testimonies regarding the loss of love and the fulfillment of longed-for affection.
