A Concert of Atonal Music by Josef Matthias Hauer

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 29 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

From a concert recorded in 1974, Joseph Kubera and Julie Steinberg perform pieces for piano, written by the Austrian composer and musical theorist, Josef Matthias Hauer. After playing several unidentified works for solo piano, Kubera is joined by Steinberg in order to perform works for piano four hands. Hauer, a seminal figure in Austrian music, and the inspiration for a number of characters in novels by authors such as Thomas Mann and Hermann Hesse, is perhaps most famous for developing a style of composing utilizing all 12 notes in the chromatic scale, independent of and years before Arnold Schoenberg. Many of his works share the same name of "Zwölftonspiel" (twelve-tone game), or “Zwölftonmusik" (twelve-tone music), two of which are featured in this concert.
