Dr Elisabeth Wolff organised a visit to this unique repository of the Arnold Schoenberg archival legacy, which belongs to the UNESCO Memory of the World. It offers insight into Arnold Schönberg´s significance as composer, painter, teacher and theoretician. In music history, his name is associated with the epoch-making innovation of “Zwölftonmusik”. The exhibition of photographs recalls various periods of Schönberg´s life from his birth in Vienna in 1874, to his death in 1951 in Los Angeles which has been moved to Vienna in 1998.

Dr Wolff expressed WA’s gratitude to the director of the ASC, Mag Angelika Möser, who guided its members through this internationally renowned Archive.
