Shot by both sides,
This review is from: Webern: Complete Edition (Audio CD)
There used to be a series of RCA LPs in the 60s called The New Music which is where I first heard of Anton Webern and his rather strange music where every note was played by a different instrument.
But the easiest way to understand the music is through psychedelia and the Beatles where the use of unconventional sounds was commonplace by the end of the 60s.
Yet Anton Webern was a conservatory trained German musician who found his ideas-which were developed from Arnold Schoenberg who he studied under-were heavily criticised.He went in for miniaturism-years later came Andrew Poppy,Philip Glass and Brian Eno.
Webern didn't live beyond the 2nd World War as he was shot by friendly fire

Er, being a defeated Austrian the fire wasn't particularly friendly...
