These arrangements for string orchestra of works by Alban Berg — some by Berg himself, others by later musicians — chart his development as a composer, from prentice pieces composed under the tutelage of Arnold Schoenberg to the rich, mature style of one of his masterpieces, the Lyric Suite, written to express an impassioned and illicit love.
