Anton Webern (Composer)

Born: 3rd December 1883, Vienna, Austria

Died: 15th September 1945, Mittersill, Austria

Nationality: Austrian

Anton Friedrich Wilhelm von Webern was an Austrian composer and conductor. (Initially he called himself Anton von Webern, but had to drop the “von” after a 1919 anti-nobility law). Along with his mentor Arnold Schoenberg and his colleague Alban Berg, Webern was in the core of those in the circle of the Second Viennese School, including Theodor W. Adorno, Heinrich Jalowetz, and Ernst Krenek. As an exponent of atonality and twelve-tone technique, Webern exerted influence on contemporaries Luigi Dallapiccola, Křenek, and even Schoenberg himself. As a tutor, Webern guided and variously influenced Arnold Elston, Frederick Dorian (Friederich Deutsch), Matty Niël, Fré Focke, Karl Amadeus Hartmann, Philipp Herschkowitz, René Leibowitz, Humphrey Searle, Leopold Spinner, and Stefan Wolpe.
