A self-portrait by composer Arnold Schoenberg, 1951

I don’t often post satirical videos, but thanks to Gwarlingo reader Elly Weiss, I had the pleasure of watching this hilarious “commercial” for the “all-time greatest hits by the beloved twelve-tone masters” this morning and wanted to pass it along.

The fact that the video was posted by the Arnold Schönberg Center is intriguing. Perhaps they’re trying to interest a younger generation in the composer’s music? The You Tube tagline says that it’s a “non scholarly approach to the second Viennese school.”

This one is for all of my composer friends out there. Enjoy!
