    I first heard Schoenberg when I was in high school - I checked out his Violin Concerto, Pelleas & Melisande, Prelude to Genesis Suite, etc...I enjoyed them to a large extent, but didn't really understand too much what was going on...sounded pretty wild, but very interesting...
    At conservatory - things changed dramatically - we performed the 5 Pieces for Orchestra...it was amazing!! the parts were so interesting, and challenging...you really had to pay attention, and you had to be conscious of AS' bracketed notations that showed that you had a fragment of the melodic line...you had to be aware of who preceded you, and who followed you to make a smooth line...
    it was great fun to play...I've loved Schoenberg's music ever since...great composer, IMO...

    When I heard Pierrot Lunaire I loved it straight away. This was in my teens when I was first getting into classical music, I didn't know anything about so-called Atonal music when 8 first heard it and loved it a lot.
    His 6 piano miniatures was also another early piece I heard of his
