Tetsuo Satoh p. 11-12, no. 17.Erwartung, a "Monodram" to a libretto by Marie Pappenheim, was first performed at the Neues Deutsches Theater in Prague on June 6, 1924."Marie Pappenheim's syntax consists of a paratactic, disorganized series of sentence fragments that permit associations in the form of a lyric monologue to crystallize from the psyche of the woman: 'I always wrote exaltedly, without direction, reflection, censorship, page after page, between the verses other thoughts.' The dissolution of syntax in the concentrated language of the monologue corresponds to a liberation of the functional structures of tonality. Small motivic cells are subjugated to a permanent mutation and propelled by an inner impulse of the text (recitative-like motion without repetition or pause). Tempos change according to psychological impulses of fear, a 'seismographic record of traumatic shock' (Theodor W. Adorno). " Therese Muxeneder, schoenberg.at. Folio.
