Schoenberg’s music challenges the qualities of classical music, just as Duchamp challenged the qualifications of what is to be considered arts in general, or as Hugo Ball challenged the qualification of using real words to create beautiful poetry in, Karawane. All of these challenges initially received negative responses and harsh critiques, but now we are able to look deeper into their intentions. Essentially, I think that all of these iconic artists challenged values of all forms to assert that there isn’t a wrong way to express one’s creativity or inner being and there isn’t a wrong part of inner being to express. In Schoenberg’s case in his pieces Serenade and The Moonfleck, I believe he was expressing creativity with his atonality and Sprechstimme, but I don’t believe these pieces place him under the Expressionism category. The pieces were modeled after Pierrot Lunaire poems so they weren’t expressing Schoenberg’s personal feeling or inner being. In Albright’s, Putting Modernism Together states expressionism is supposed to “express the inner workings of the mind” and since these pieces are partially another artist’s work, I think that it is impossible for them to achieve that individual deep level of expression.
