It's like age descriptions, where they describe what age something is appropriate for.

Fair enough Of course, I only made the thread last week and you've been the most active poster other than me. It's interesting (and great) that you have taken to Schoenberg the most, as he's often considered to be quite difficult. Which works of his have you listened to?

There's just something about his music that grabs me. It really seems to come alive. I've got a CD with a work named Pelleas und Melisande. It's the only thing I've familiarized myself with so far, but I've owned this CD for quite a while by now. I'll definitely get some more Schöenberg when the opportunity presents itself (a local record store that I frequent has a large classical section that I skim now and then. It's unsorted, so I just get lucky and find something good now and then).

Ahh, Pelleas is from before his switch to atonality, which is the point when lots of people seem to lose interest: of course, it's their loss as those who do 'get' him tend to consider him to be one of the greatest composers, whether it's his tonal, atonal, or twelve-tone music. I'd suggest Verklärte Nacht and then Gurre-Lieder for the next Schoenberg to explore: they are just as good as the (fantastic) Pelleas, and from the same period of his life.

I'm thinking I must have heard some of his later stuff already, but I'm not good with names on classical pieces.

Oh and a couple days ago I got two new CD's, so I've been listening to some Bartók (string quartets) and some Mussorgsky (Pictures at an exhibition plus various other, smaller piano pieces). Getting along with both really well so far
