    Webern composed this one movement work for string quartet in June 1905 but it wasn't publicly performed until 1962. The Langsamer Satz ("Slow Movement") originated during a hiking trip in Austria that Webern took with his cousin who he later married. It is a romantic, tonal, almost Brahmsian...
  2. Religious Music
    I've been listening a lot to Webern lately. It is very spiritual music, very expressive, and dealing with spiritual subjects. The Cantatas are obviously an homage to Bach. Some jibes have been leveled at him; rarely do I ever get responses to my 'reviews,' but here are a couple of responses...

    Surprisingly, most critics actually seem to a gree the Puccini's opera La fanciulla del west is a rather stupendous work. Yet it is still relatively rarely performed. There was a burst of performances around its centenary, at the Met, in Stockholm, Athens and Chicago, but it is still performed...

    So Webern's complete works can fit on three CDs, he was a master of the miniature (although not very prolific) and hasn't written an opera. Tell me, if Webern composed an opera, what would it be about? (Remember the storyline has to be able to be told in two and a half minutes or less! ;) )
