Founder of the Second Viennese School, Arnold Schönberg opened music up to a new modernity. The twelve stations in this show are snapshots in time of the life and career of this extraordinary genius.

A radical innovator in musical thought, Arnold Schönberg ushered in a new aesthetic era, bringing in his wake a number of emulators (Berg, Webern) but also violent opposition. A more sensitive artist than you might think, a theorist but above all a poet of sound (and colour, too: he was also a painter!), he was branded a ‘degenerate’ by the Nazi regime, and had to emigrate to the United States. With these twelve stations, in the image of the twelve tones of the scale that structure his dodecaphonic system, we invite you on a journey through the kaleidoscope of a creation in perpetual transfiguration: from Pelléas et Mélisande to Erwartung, from Pierrot Lunaire to the Piano Concerto, in the most diverse formations (the orchestra, the lied, the piano...), it is the whole colourful universe of this unique creator that we are invited to discover.
