Arnold Schoenberg in America

I propose to complete the writing of a book on Arnold Schoenberg's life and work in America (1933-1951) consisting of an introduction, five chapters and an epilogue. I will address his acculturation in America and illuminate the genesis and contexts of his American works and explain the politics of publication and performance. I will also discuss his teaching methods, his interaction with students and the reception of his compositions in America. My study will challenge clich├ęs and fill significant gaps in the existing literature and thus contribute to a new understanding of this key figure in twentieth-century music.
