    Hi guys, Perhaps no other composer is more demanding of his listeners than Arnold Schoenberg. For those among us that have given interest in his music, it becomes evident that a certain conscious effort must be made in order to endure the performance, even when done by remarkable musicians, and...

    Probably this is the most suitable forum for the thread, it would get lost in CMD, I think.
