Il 24 Dicembre 1935, dopo aver completato il concerto per violino e orchestra, moriva Alban Berg (1885-1935), grande sostenitore e scardinatore della dodecafonia.
Qui lo ricordiamo con la sua op.1, la sonata per pianoforte del 1908, una delle più notevoli opere prime mai scritte, da qualsiasi compositore. La sonata è quasi un prototipo dell’idea della variazione continua, passata da Brahms a Schoenberg e poi a Berg: l’intera composizione deriva dalla successione di quarte della frase iniziale.

December 24, after completing his concert for violin, Alban Berg died. He was a great promoter of Schoenberg’s twelve tone technique of which he made a highly personal adaptation that enabled him to combine frank atonality with more traditionally tonal passages and harmonies.
His Piano Sonata op.1 is one of the most formidable initial works ever written by any composer. It is a striking example of the developing variation technique — the whole composition can be derived from the opening quartal gesture and from the opening phrase.
