20th-Century Composers: Anton von Webern
BeschreibungAnton 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 Schoenberg he became a disciple of the twelve-note technique which he used to create a sound characteristically his own. Tragically killed during the Allied occupation of Austria, he remains an influence on musicians of subsequent generations.
