Description  

Austrian composer (1885–1935) who produced compositions that combined Mahlerian Romanticism with a personal adaptation of Schoenberg's twelve-tone technique. ALS in German, signed “Berg,” written on both sides of a 5.5 x 3.5 postcard, no date. Letter to Bruno Watza in Modling, in part (translated): “I've long heard nothing from you…in early July when I was back in Vienna, I called your office and told one of your colleagues…that you may call or visit me, but I did not hear from you. And now I have been here for some time, working on the publication of the piano score of my opera that will appear in the fall.” In fine condition, with trivial bends and soiling. Berg only wrote two operas, Wozzeck in 1925 and Lulu in 1937. Desirable musical content. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
