Overview

Described by Aaron Copland as ‘among the finest creations in the modern repertoire’, Alban Berg’s Violin Concerto has become a twentieth-century classic. In this authoritative and highly readable guide to the work the reader is introduced not only to the concerto itself but to all that surrounded and determined its composition. This is a book about musical culture in the 1930s, about the Second Viennese School, about tonality, atonality and serialism, about Berg’s own musical development, compositional method and the private significance the Violin Concerto held for him. The book describes the genesis of the work, its performance history and critical reception and, in two detailed musical chapters, provides a section-by-section account of the book and a closer analysis of the musical language and structure. Anthony Pople’s ability to combine musical anecdote with scholarly discussion makes this guide compelling reading for the amateur and the specialist alike.
