IN GENERAL

Using in a completely personal way the new musical genre of twelve-tone method, Berg accomplished to create a totally unique style which led to marvellous artistic results - eg. the opera "Wozzeck" is considered a genuine masterpiece of modern music.

STYLE
Alban Berg (1885-1935): Among the "holy trinity" of twelve-tone system composers - that is, Schoenberg, Berg and Webern - Berg is considered to be the one that used more "approaches" to the tonal sound among all of the three. As a natural consequence, Berg's works are considered to be easier to listen to compared to the other two composers'. In order to accomplish this result, Berg shaped the twelve-tone composing technique in his - perhaps somehow theoretically "unorthodox" - way, which helped his music to output an ideal mixture of tonal and atonal elements, that nevertheless can be almost equally considered as genuine twelve-tone composition, and which had been proved very expressive. Thus, it is not strange that the work of Berg is performed regularly in our days.
