Alban Berg - Short Biography

 

Works

Work

No.

Year

Violin Concerto ("To the memory of an angel") (Berg’s last composition) based upon 4 tone rows, a Carinthian [from Kärnten, Austria] folksong and the chorale melody Es ist genug. In the final Adagio mvt. Berg included two variations based upon the Bach chorale setting Es ist genug, Herr, so nimm denn meinen Geist in Cantata BWV 60. The chorale, which appears near the end of the Concerto in fulfilment of its programme as a Requiem, is foreshadowed from the beginning, its opening notes embedded in the work's 12-note series.

No Op. number

1935
