Via Alex Ross, in one of my favourite blogs (my only music blog so far), I suggest this twelve-tone primer for all of us pseudo-intellectuals who know we need to know about this at cocktail parties, but lack the time to get into it too deeply.

Go see it here!

A confession: I think the high point was Haydn, and a fair bit of Mozart. Beethoven was annoyingly modern. This Schoenberg stuff still sounds to me like my cats walking on the keyboard.
