There is something about Schoenberg’s music for solo piano. When I need to clear my head it’s my go-to life soundtrack.

Most music, whether classical, pop, jazz, blues, country or other, forces me to follow a melody or a beat. It pulls me in and demands my attention.

But Schoenberg gives you room to let your mind wander. You are free to focus on whatever you are doing, in a sonically enriched environment.

Schoenberg’s solo piano music simply flows into my subconscious, while leaving my conscious mind unfettered. I don’t know of any other music that does this.
