Schoenberg's Erwartung (Expectation) and the artwork of Edvard Munch.

At the climax of Schoenberg's compact operatic monodrama, a woman screams upon finding the dead body of her lover. The close connections between Schoenberg's score and Munch's symbolism extend beyond the composer's expressionist music. The composer was also a painter, heavily influenced by Munch. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition
Edvard Munch: Between the Clock and the Bed, on view at The Met Breuer, November 14, 2017–February 4, 2018.

View the series.
