Biography

Alban Berg, a composer of the modern age nostalgic for the 19th century

Alban Berg was, with Webern, the most prominent representative of the Second Viennese School. At first self-taught, he composed numerous works in the style for the Romantics. His encounter with Arnold Schoenberg in 1904 would be decisive for his musical development. The composer was to learn and assimilate the twelve-tone technique and to apply it to his works without, however, relinquishing lyricism, poetry and Romantic expression.
