Considered by many to be the most accessible of the Schoenberg-influenced composers who comprised the second Viennese school, Alban Berg demonstrated the possibilities of the twelve-tone system as an expansion of traditional methods. This volume presents essays written by leading American and British scholars that discuss Berg's life and cultural environment, his style and technique, and his unfinished second opera Lulu.
