This collection of unpublished letters and articles by Arnold Schönberg deserves a special place in every musician -and music lovers- desk, preferrably within grasp. Okay, Ive read it more than three times and come back to it almost on a daily basis. Five stars all the way, this book could be of importance to those who think that you cant actually talk about music and art in general. Theres a lot to think and discuss about art, taste, form, fashions, style, and of course: content- the Idea.

Schönberg dives deep into the essence of music composition theory and brings forth the eternal questions and a reasonable amount of possible answers about the mysteries of the geniuses of the past and the fate of future forms, notation techniques, intellectual property rights, the administration of public music education, theaters, and even the evolution of standard orchestral instruments. All this important technical matters are furnished with a decent amount of digressions by the author in what can be called extremely personal opinions and a relentless criticism to past and present musical trends, institutions, composers, theorists, pedagogues and even to critics themselves.

Pure gold.
