For years, the reception of the Second Viennese School played a central role in the discussion of aesthetic and compositional questions in the circle of the Darmstadt Summer Course. In theoretical as well as artistic statements, especially from the 1950s, it becomes clear how the young composers found their own perspectives after the war in the confrontation with Schönberg, Berg, and Webern. Not only because of the private connection between Arnold Schönberg and Luigi Nono, but it is also obvious to use these two names to examine processes of appropriation and demarcation in theory and practice that determined important currents of new music after 1945.

Seminar at the Center for Research on Arnold Schönberg and the Viennese School at the Department of Musicology and Performance Studies of the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna
