Please don't create a suggestion that Schönberg only (or even mostly)
created 12-tone music. He personality and artistic development is a
truly fascinating process in which 12-tone composition was a chapter
that he basically started getting out of as soon as he got into.

There were other composers far more engaged in the a 12-tone technique
like Webern (whose two Kantatas are of utmost beauty) and Křenek,
whose collection of works I recently recorded on CD [1], and that I'm
perhaps a little less fond of, but his (reportedly) strictly 12-tone
Piano Sonata recorded by Gould is also wonderful.
