Having circulated a piano score of his opera Wozzeck, Berg was asked to assemble a few excerpts ("bruchstücke," or fragments) for an international music festival, as staging constraints made performance of the entire opera impossible. In great haste, Berg assembled the Drei Bruchstücke in time for rehearsals, and the ensuing premiere was a great success.
