Arnold Schoenberg 1874-1951

In cooperation with the Arnold Schoenberg Center Vienna, the Austrian Embassy and the Austrian Cultural Forum (Washington) present the travelling exhibition Arnold Schoenberg 1874-1951: An Exhibition for Hearing. Curators Nuria Schoenberg Nono and Lawrence A. Schoenberg have arranged this exhibition, to be accompanied by a detailed audio program, into twelve Teatrinos -- or little theaters. Also available on-line is a searchable data-base of thousands of Schoenberg's letters -- including one from 1923, to Russian painter Wassily Kandisky then at the German Bauhaus, warning of the anti-Semitism of "Hittler" [sic]. This database is being published by the Schoenberg Center Vienna, in association with the Library of Congress, and Belmont Publishers, Los Angeles.
