Arnold Schoenberg and his friends and students (including Alban Berg, Anton Webern, Alexander von Zemlinsky, Alma Mahler, Erwin Stein, Roberto Gerhard, Wassily Kandinsky and Hanns Eisler) tell the story of the composer's life in their own words. This first segment takes us through late 1908. Excerpts from live performances of Schoenberg's works are included, with artists including Pierre Boulez and the Ensemble Intercontemporain, the Schoenberg Quartet, Oliver Knussen and Michael Tilson Thomas. Featured works include Verklärte Nacht, the Gurre-Lieder and the second string quartet.
