The Journal of the Arnold Schoenberg Center presents selected papers of the symposium held at the Arnold Schönberg Center in Vienna in October 2019. One focus was a one-day roundtable on sketching in Arnold Schoenberg, Anton Webern, and Alban Berg on the threshold of atonality and during the transition to twelve-tone composing.

The conference organized in cooperation with the Department of Musicology and Performance Studies at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna was attended by speakers from four countries, whose contributions represent a broad spectrum of current research projects. These range from questions about the genesis and reception of the twelve-tone method to aspects of creative chronology and analytical history.
