Citáty Arnold Schönberg


„Market value is irrelevant to intrinsic value.“

— Arnold Schoenberg
Context: Market value is irrelevant to intrinsic value. … Unqualified judgment can at most claim to decide the market-value — a value that can be in inverse proportion to the intrinsic value. "An Artistic Impression" (1909) in Style and Idea (1985), p. 190

„I see the work as a whole first. Then I compose the details.“

— Arnold Schoenberg
Context: I see the work as a whole first. Then I compose the details. In working out, I always lose something. This cannot be avoided. There is always some loss when we materialize. But there is compensating gain in vitality. As quoted in an interview with José Rodriguez (c. 1936) in Schoenberg‎ (1971) by Merle Armitage, p. 149

„I have just read your book [On the Spiritual in Art] from cover to cover, and I will read it once more. I find it pleasing to an extraordinary degree, because we agree on nearly all of the main issues..“

— Arnold Schoenberg
