Program for a performance conducted by Schönberg

“There are individual chords here [op. 16/3] that alternate at certain intervals so gently that the instruments wavering back and forth are hardly perceptible, and rather create the impression of shifting reflections in the water. Indeed, Schönberg received the inspiration for this soundscape on a still morning at Lake Traun.”
