Thursday’s Something Else (Schoenberg)
My relationship with Schoenberg has been poor so far, we hardly ever speak and then it’s just “triton, tschuss”. But since WNO is doing Moses and Aaron this July, it niggled at the back of my mind. I finally gave it a try. Well… it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. It even proved occasionally all right. I guess it’s very different listening to it nowadays. It sounds a lot like an old horror film soundtrack, which just means you have to listen to his stuff in the proper context..
