Great Composer, Great Book,
This review is from: Arnold Schoenberg's Journey (Hardcover)
I don't understand musical notation, but when Mr. Shawn goes into detail, his inspiration is transmitted to me, and I want to go hear the work.
Schoenberg is tough, true. But I hope people will read this book and see he was human and passionate.
It's really silly that I haven't had the opportunity to hear one of the greatest composer's music in concert. Will that change?
With more advocates such as Mr. Shawn, I can hope so.
