Appropriating, adapting and developing styles of former times was a very common practice in the 19th century. Schönberg’s Baroque-fashioned movements for strings may well be the fruit of his studies of counterpoint with his friend Alexander Zemlinsky; much later on, in his twelve-tone “Suite” for piano, Op. 25, Schönberg would again return to the old forms – but this time, he trans¬formed them, using a completely new musical vocabulary.
