In some ways, Austrian composer Arnold Schoenberg (1874-1951) might be said to not only be part of the Modern period, but to define it. His theories of atonality and development of twelve-tone music, assigning equal value to the entire chromatic scale in all works, influenced others who followed him, including Webern and Berg. These three formed the core of what came to be called the Second Viennese School.
