The documentary “Arnold Schönberg – Who I am” by Paolo Faroni and Christian Giuffrida shows the numerous faces of a genius: the composer, the painter, the father and the human Arnold Schönberg.
Leading through the documentary is Nuria Schoenberg Nono, the daughter of the great Viennese composer, who together with Daniel Barenboim, worldwide famous interpreter and supporter of Schönberg’s music, embarks on a journey to discover one of the most prominent and controversial musical figures of the 20th century.
With the help of musicologist Hartmut Krones and Therese Muxeneder, head of archive of the Arnold Schönberg Center in Vienna, they paint an intriguing picture of an often misunderstood musician, who was despised at the time, but is now regarded as a pioneer of today’s music. Running time: 57’
