Skandalkonzerte Arnold Schönberg ou le scandale de la forme pure

Abstract : The musical scandal is typically a kind of collective performance, the ritual of an ordinary concert gone wrong. In german, this is called a Skandalkonzert. Being close to other tumultous artistic performances which have marked the history of the performing arts, it differs from political scandals, which usually involve a process triggered by the revelation of a secret, and from scandals in literature and the visual arts. Yet, while political scandals usually confirm the transgressed norm, scandals in the arts can lead to a revision of the rules which regulate the artistic activity. Yet only music seems to have caused what we might call scandals of pure form, i.e. independent from verbal or iconic meaning. But that implied viewing these forms as the metaphor or the expression of basic features of social and political life. The paper explores this issue by focusing on Arnold Schoenberg's career in Vienna before World War I.
