In Schoenberg and His School, René Leibowitz performs a threefold task. He relates the music of Schoenberg and his followers to the age-old tradition of Western polyphony, of which, he says, it is but the latest product. He discusses, with numerous musical examples, all known major works of Schoenberg and of his two great disciples Alban Berg and Anton Webern. And, in the final section of the book, he considers what the tradition represented by these three men could bring to the future, if carried still further by the young composers of today.

René Leibowitz, a composer and conductor of note in France, is particularly well qualified to speak on his chosen theme, for he studied with both Webern and Schoenberg, and has in turn taught some of France’s most promising young composers. As a result of this experience, Schoenberg and His School is not only firmly grounded on careful analysis but also imbued with the contagious enthusiasm generated by his intense personal involvement with the music of which he writes.
