An Austrian composer primarily of atonal music in many genres, including opera; known for "Wozzeck" (1925) and "Three Orchestral Pieces" (1915). Webern, Berg, and Schoenberg (Berg's teacher) made up the Viennese School, Berg being the romantically impassioned point of this composer triangle -- highly original and lyrical, with a brilliant sense of orchestral color. Information about his life and love affairs is encoded in many of his works (especially the "Lyric Suite" and the "Violin Concerto"), which are the subjects of controversy. ~ Blue Gene Tyranny, Rovi
