Subj: Re: [kl] An interesting story about Schoenberg

Schoenberg was not deaf. And the point of the story is much more severe
than your suggested solution. In the final analysis, it suggests that
it didn't matter what notes were played in that particular composition
because even the composer could not tell the difference.

I do not say that I agree with that terrible accusion, only that it is
the ultimate meaning of the vignette I quoted.
