This is the same program of Schoenberg’s concert organized in Monaco one hundred years ago, in 1911. Kandinsky, a few days after seeing the concert, wrote to Schoenberg and they began their extraordinary correspondence.


“Art belongs to the unconscious!”

“Dear professor! Please forgive me if I write to You although I never had the pleasure of meeting You personally. I just attended Your concert, and it was a real delight for me.”

These words are the beginning of one among the most fascinating correspondences of the twentieth century arts, the one between Arnold Schoenberg and Vasilij Kandinskij. Kandinskij wrote those words the 18th of January, 1911, and the concert, whose impression is still powerful for him, was performed the second day of January in Munich: first and second Quartet, Three piano pieces op. 11 and a series of five Lieder.

“I believe that the harmony of our times should not be found along a “geometrical” path, but along an anti-geometrical, anti-logical path. This is the path of the “dissonances in the arts”, so then in painting as much as in music.”

So Kandinskij wrote to Schoenberg in his first letter, and Schoenberg, a few days later:

“The art belongs to the unconscious! It is necessary to express yourself! Express themselves with directness!”
