"What was plainly to be heard in the vocal solos [of Lulu] was that Schoenbergian whooping and scooping, an entirely ugly, unfertile, unvocal and inexpressive style which has nothing to do with the functions of the voice or with the natural unfoldment of melody. It was very hard to sing and so unpleasant to the ear...To us Mr. Berg and his ilk are becoming tedious, rather childish and distasteful. Isn't it time that we say "enough" to music which bluffs itself and will bluff us, too, if we allow it to do so? Who wants to be such a dupe of an artistic deception?"

(Olin Downes, New York Times, April 5, 1935)
