Genres he performed include Serialism, 20th-century classical music and Atonal music.

Anton Webern was part of the Second Viennese School alongside Arnold Schoenberg and Alban Berg. He studied music theory and composition with Schoenberg and eventually became his disciple. Webern's compositions were characterized by their brevity, often lasting only a few minutes, and their highly structured, serialist approach to composition. He also conducted and taught music throughout his career. Webern's life and career were cut short when he was accidentally shot and killed by an American army soldier shortly after the end of World War II. Despite his short career and tragic death, Webern is widely regarded as one of the most important composers of the 20th century.
