This Project is dedicated to my former doctoral advisor and leading Editor of the Alban Berg Gesamtausgabe Prof. Rudolf Stephan
albanberg.resampled.de is as far as I know the most comprehensiv acoustic representation of all non scenic compositions by Alban Berg. This project widely benefits from the great "Alban Berg Gesamtausgabe" published by the Alban Berg Stiftung Vienna, while based on manuscripts of the austrian national library it even goes in some aspects clearly beyond the amount of works included in the Alban Berg Gesamtausgabe.
albanberg.resampled.de presents many compositions and Fragments of very different state of accomplishment and musical maturity, meanwhile non of them seem to me justify any doubts in the musical earnestness which characterises in my impression Alban Bergs musical thinking in general from the very first sketches. Thus the knowledge of Alban Bergs path to the great wellknown Masterworks of modern music could in my opinion even help to better understand how deep Alban Berg was in literarlly all his music rooted in our rich musical tradition.
albanberg.resampled.de is my attempt to digitally realise the complete non scenic musical-works of Alban Berg on behalf of the best means and skills avaible for me. I would be glad if anything this project provides, might be able to help anyone interested in Alban Bergs music in any way.
