Johann Strauß (Sohn) A Survivor from Warsaw
Schönberg's circumstances in 1947
Arnold Schönberg

The letter to Hans Heinz Stuckenschmidt in which Schönberg announced the completion of the particell of "A Survivor from Warsaw" also contained a bitter remark: "I have to work hard here to make a living". In fact, in his circumstances, the fees for this commission were extremely important for Schönberg.
And yet, with this composition Schönberg also wrote a kind of creed which has few parallels in music history.
