    Default Schoenberg quote

    I could swear that I remember a quote by Schoenberg that goes something like this:

    It is said that each generation understands the music of the great composers in its own way. This is wrong. In fact, each generation misunderstands the music of the great composers in its own way
    Does anyone know this quote? If so can you provide a source for it?

    Thanks

    I do not remember it, but you can try searching the archives at the Arnold Schoenberg Center website.
