Written in 1910; must have sounded like music from Mars. Webern was clever in dressing up this rather austere material in the brightest colors; using special performance techniques that were state of the art for the time (Bartok pizz, pedal tones, and "knocking on wood" were still in the future).

Wikipedia describes music from this stage of his career as "freely atonal." This is misleading as analysis reveals impeccable formal discipline.

Piano and click track created via midi; then practice practice practice; my beloved 1886 Enrico Melegari violin recorded on an analog portastudio. Mixed and mastered in DP.
