Anton Webern and Heinrich Jalowetz were, along with Alban Berg, among the earliest and closest pupils of Arnold Schoenberg. Webern's letters to his friend, later a well-known opera conductor, form a new and fully rounded picture of the composer's personality, thoughts, feelings, and actions. The 300-plus documents in this book (Jalowetz's replies have not survived) cover a period of more than thirty years.
