Schönberg – linking two continents in sound

An online exhibition by the Österreichische Mediathek
in cooperation with the Arnold Schönberg Center

Follow in Arnold Schönberg's footsteps with our virtual tour of the places where he lived and worked, from Vienna to the great cities of Europe and on to the film mecca of Hollywood – all with a musical accompaniment from the composer's own private collection.

Schönberg owned over 400 records - carefully preserved, much discussed, and played regularly. Professional productions, live recordings, and private recordings portray the life and work of a composer whose impact extended beyond national borders, and allow us to explore aspects of his family life in a gentle salute to Vienna.
