Not Sold In Stores

187 full-length selections from the beloved 12-tone masters of the Second Viennese School.

I remember when playing Pierrot Lunaire on the lo-fi would make my mom pull her hair out in mock horror. Now Schoenberg provokes nostalgia for the lost days when these sounds were new. Groups play this 100-year-old music with real enthusiasm today, instead of the dreary earnestness of my youth. Is there nothing shocking in music anymore?
