Jewish Austrian composer Arnold Schoenberg is associated with the expressionist movement, and is touted as the leader of the Second Viennese School. This new release features Schoenberg's works for string quartet. Even inside this single genre, these works are extraordinarily diverse. The Asasello Quartet has released two previous albums, both of which have been well-reviewed. They are known for their unconventional concerts, and are now making a name for themselves by winning international competitions.
