Happy Birthday Alban Berg (1885-1935)

One of my very favorite composers, who managed to combine his teacher Schoenberg's serial technique with lovely lyricism. Among my favorite of his works are his 5 early songs, violin concerto, the "Lyric Suite," and his operas Lulu and Wozzeck. He is one of the truly great composers, but does not get the attention he deserves.
