Alban Berg dedicated the Chamber Concerto to Arnold Schoenberg for his 50th birthday, and in a letter to Schoenberg describing the work, he ascribes its inspiration to his interest in the symbolics of multiples of three. Indeed, the work is a dedication to the motto: "All good things… are three!" Performance materials are available on rental.
