Example text

27 • BERG’S WORLDS Contradiction and paradox are central ingredients of Berg’s persona and of his music. He was a man of open amiability and of many secrets; a faithful friend and an eager consumer of malicious gossip; a composer of fierce modernism who courted popular appeal. The elusive qualities of his character make it easy to be sucked into a vortex of eternal regress and self-absorption. Berg, the man, we follow at our peril. Berg, the composer, however, transformed the spinning vortex of his unknowable self into extraordinary music that reaches beyond the self toward a common understanding of the human condition.

Soma Morgenstern, “Im Trauerhaus,“ 23: Eine Wiener Musikzeitschrift 24/25 (1 February 1936): 16. See Mark DeVoto’s translation, “In the House of Mourning,” part of “Alban Berg zum Gedenken,” in this volume. 3. Heinrich Jalowetz, “Abschied von Alban Berg,” 23: Eine Wiener Musikzeitschrift 24/25 (1 February 1936): 12–15, 14. Translated by Mark DeVoto in “Alban Berg zum Gedenken,” in this volume. 4. Theodor W. Adorno, Alban Berg, trans. Juliane Brand and Christopher Hailey (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1991), 13.

And even reversible. Adorno made much of Berg as the composer of music forever in transition but whose changes were incremental and might be reduced to a single, insignificant link, be it a gesture or a note from which all else flows. One might take this link to be the core, but it was something that Berg sought in vain to find within himself. • 27 • BERG’S WORLDS Contradiction and paradox are central ingredients of Berg’s persona and of his music.
