The Gedanke manuscripts, from which The Musical Idea is compiled, arelegendary writings of Arnold Schoenberg. Central to his concern was his concept ofthe "musical idea," which represents the wholeness of the musical work andembraces Schoenberg's notions of motive, gestalt, phrase, theme, rhythm, harmony, and form. Ultimately, the musical idea is the vision of the composer by which amusical work achieves unity in relation to the means by which the work iscomprehended in its unity by the listener.
