Preliminary Exercises in Counterpoint : Arnold Schoenberg :
Preliminary Exercises was unfinished at the time of Schoenberg’s death and it preliminayr with somewhat vague explanations and a lack of theoretical exposition. His incomplete prefaces hint at a more expansive text which would probably have been elucidating.
If you’re patient enough to map the examples back to the sparse text, it might well be rewarding. If you’re trying to tap into Schoenberg’s counterponit psyche, you might strike tedesco tea. I was expecting something more along the lines of Hindemith’ Preliminary Exercises was unfinished at the time of Schoenberg’s death and it shows with somewhat vague explanations and a lack of theoretical exposition.
Preliminary Exercises in Counterpoint
I was expecting something more along the lines of Hindemith’s texts on the subject if less dogmatic and more grounded in earlier tradition and was disappointed.

He was an Austrian composer, associated with the expressionist movement in German poetry and art, and leader of the Second Viennese School. Schoenberg’s arnkld, both in terms of harmony and development, is among the major landmarks of 20th-century musical thought; at least three generations of composers in the European and American traditions have consciously extended his thinking or, in some cases, passionately reacted against it.
During the rise of the Nazi Party in Austria, his music was labeled, alongside jazz, as degenerate art.
Schoenberg was widely known early in his career for his success in simultaneously extending the traditionally opposed Counterpount Romantic styles of Brahms and Wagner.
Later, his name would come to personify pioneering innovations in atonality that would become the most polemical feature of 20th-century art music.
In the s, Schoenberg developed the twelve-tone technique, a widely influential compositional method of manipulating an ordered series of all twelve notes in the chromatic scale. He also coined the term developing variation, and was the first modern composer to embrace ways of developing motifs without resorting to the dominance of a centralized melodic idea. Schoenberg was also a painter, an important music theorist, and an influential teacher of composition; his students included Alban Berg, Anton Webern, Hanns Eisler, Egon Wellesz, and later John Cage, Lou Harrison, Earl Kim, and many other prominent musicians.
Many of Schoenberg’s practices, including the formalization of compositional method, and his habit of openly inviting audiences to think analytically, are echoed in avant-garde musical thought throughout the 20th century. His often polemical views of music history and aesthetics were crucial to many of the 20th century’s significant musicologists and critics, including Theodor Adorno, Charles Rosen, and Carl Dahlhaus.
