ABSTRACT
The article presents information about the musician Arnold Schoenberg. Schoenberg was always proud of his intimate collaboration with the Almighty, who, it seems, provided him with inspiration, stayed his hand when he had "taken the red pencil of the censor," ordered him on the hard but royal path, from time to time presented him with gifts "subconsciously received" and finally landed him in space where, "as in Swedenborg's heaven . . . there is no absolute down, no right or left, forward or backward." Schoenberg's beatific vision has come to be known as atonality.
