    Default Schoenberg as an Orchestrator.

    I think Schoenberg very much loved orchestration, as of his re-orchestrations such as of Brahms' piano quartet and bach's organ prelude and fugue in e flat. I'm currently listening to Gurre-lieder and I find the orchestration very rich and harmonious. What do you think? Is Schoenberg one of the greats?

    Schoenberg was a brilliant, innovative, orchestrator.

    Certainly, Gurrelieder is one of my favorite works by him. Such lush music can't go unnoticed. I also think he was a unique orchestrator. My only proviso is about the orchestration of the 4th movement from the Brahms's Piano quartet in G minor. It's not totally convincing but it's fun nonetheless.

    Great, natural, intuitive and self-taught orchestrator. It's really a shame he never wrote a book on it.
