Berg at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Former duchy, Holy Roman Empire. Located on the Rhine River, the area now lies in the districts of Dü sseldorf and Cologne, Germany. In the 11th cent. the counts of Berg acquired Westphalian lands east of Cologne; these were incorporated into a duchy in 1380. Berg became a leading iron and textile manufacturing center in the 17th-18th cent. In 1806 Napoleon made it a grand duchy in his Confederation of the Rhine. Following the Congress of Vienna in 1814-15, it became part of Prussia.

Austrian composer. Born in Vienna, he was largely self-taught musically until he met A. Schoenberg at 19. This would prove the decisive event in his life, and Schoenberg would remain his teacher for eight years. Under his influence, Berg's early late-Romantic tonal works give way to increasing atonality and finally (1925) to twelve-tone composition. His Expressionist opera Wozzeck (1922) would become the most universally acclaimed post-Romantic opera. His second opera, Lulu, on which he worked six years, remained unfinished at his death at 50, which resulted from septicemia caused by an abscess. His other works include two string quartets, incl. the Lyric Suite (1926); Three Pieces for Orchestra (1915); and a violin concerto (1935).
