Inspired by a poem of Richard Dehmel, the 1899 work Verklauml;rte Nacht, a tone poem for string sextet composed in the late-Romantic tradition, is one of the first pieces of program music ever written for a chamber ensemble. Pierrot Lunaire is one of Schoenberg’s best-known works. Composed in 1912, it is a musical setting for speaker and chamber ensemble of 21 poems by Albert Giraud. In this ironic-satiric work, Schoenberg incorporates his revolutionary theory of atonality, and introduces the singing-speech delivery called "Sprechstimme." Both works are reprinted from authoritative editions.

An American of Austrian birth, Arnold Schoenberg composed initially in a highly developed romantic style but eventually turned to painting and expressionism. At first he was influenced by Richard Wagner and tried to write in a Wagnerian style. He attracted the attention of Alban Berg and Anton von Webern, with whom he created a new compositional method based on using all 12 half-steps in each octave as an organizing principle, the so-called 12-tone technique. His importance to the development of twentieth-century music is incredible, but the music he composed using this new method is not easily accessible to most concertgoers.
