Alban Berg's Violin Concerto was his last work. Dedicated ' to the memory of an angel,' it was written in 1935 as an elegy on the death of Manon Gropius, the eighteen-year-old daughter of Mahler's widow. There are two movements, each of which is divided into two sections; in the last section Berg introduces the German chorale ' Es ist genug,' with the same harmonies that Bach gave to it in his volume of chorale-harmonisations.
