    I have no musical expertise; I only remember years ago reading the opinion (I believe in the long defunct High Fidelity Magazine) that Schoenberg's Woodwind Quintet (1923-24) was monumentally "ugly."

    Honestly, I think it's a fairly ugly piece, and probably not as great a piece as some of his other works from the 20s

    It's not hard to imagine what the epithet would've meant for Haydn and Mozart, but in our post Boulez and Captain Beefheart world it is something of an anachronism, I submit.
