Arnold Schoenberg (1874-1951)Concerto for String Quartet and Orchestra inB flat, after the Concerto Grosso Op. 6, No. 7by George Frideric Handel, freely transcribed anddeveloped by Arnold Schoenberg

Whereas the playing time of Handel's concerto forstrings and continuo is fourteen minutes, andSchoenberg's orchestral elaboration of it 22 minutes, thework should be counted among the latter's compositionsand not simply as one of his orchestrations (Brahms,Bach). He was not an unqualified admirer of Handel,and indeed became livid if the name was mentioned inthe same breath as Bach. Apropos the Monn CelloConcerto recomposed for Pablo Casals, Schoenbergwrote:






"I was mainly intent on removing the defects ofthe Handelian style. Just as Mozart did withHandel's Messiah, I have had to get rid of wholehandfuls of rosalias and sequences, replacing themwith real substance. I also did my best to deal withthe other main defect of the Handelian style,which is that the theme is always best when it firstappears and grows steadily more insignificant andtrivial in the course of the piece.""

Das Buch der hangenden Garten, Op. 15
11 Unterm Schutz von dichten Blattergrunden
12 Hain in diesen Paradiesen
13 Als Neuling trat ich ein in dein Gehege
14 Da meine Lippen reglos sind und brennen
15 Saget mir, auf welchem Pfade
16 Jedem Werke bin ich furder tot
17 Angst und Hoffen wechselnd mich beklemmen
18 Wenn ich heut nicht deinen Leib beruhre
19 Streng ist uns das Gluck und sprode
20 Das schone Beet betracht ich mir im Harren
21 Als wir hinter dem bebluhmten Tore
22 Wenn sich bei heiliger Ruh in tiefen Matten
23 Du lehnest wider eine Silberweide
24 Sprich nicht immer von dem Laub
25 Wir bevolkerten die abend dustern Lauben
