The composer Alban Berg (February 9, 1885, Vienna, Austria - December 24, 1935, Vienna) continued as a pupil of Arnold Schoenberg the development of the atonal music. He is known for the operas Wozzeck and Lulu and the Chamber Concerto for violin, piano and 13 wind instruments. His work makes use of the "tone row" system generally credited to Schoenberg.
