Suite for Piano (Schoenberg)
Arnold Schoenberg's Suite for Piano op. 25 (Suite für Klavier) is a twelve tone piece for piano composed between 1921 and 1923. The "Gavotte" movement contains, "a parody of a baroque keyboard suite that involves the cryptogram of Bach's name as an important harmonic and melodic device (Stuckenschmidt 1977 108: Lewin 1987-83, n.9)" and a related quotation of Schoenberg's op. 19/vi.
Cone (1972) has catalogued what he believes to be a number of "mistakes" in Schoenberg's music, one of which is in measure number five of the Suite's "Gavotte", G♭ instead of G♮.
