I kinda think liking atonal music is akin to enjoying sadomashochism. Sure there are people out there who legitimately enjoy getting pleasure out of pain but this is one of those fringe far out type situation.
However it seems to be lot more socially acceptable in admitting to liking atonal music for some strange reason
I have listened to the first two Schoenberg String Quartet already. They are all excruciating even though they are supposed to be his tonal works!!
What happened to the man who wrote Verklarte Nacht? What a waste of potential
