ABSTRACT. Ludwig Wittgenstein rejected the contemporary music of his time (Strauss, Mahler, Schoenberg, et al.) in favor of older, classically constructed and generally more conservative music (Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms and Josef Labor). The reasons for his preference are not immediately evident given his adventurous thinking, however, his attraction to music which worked within a solidly established system of rules does make sense. Additionally, a brief list of compositions which have set Wittgenstein's words and a short discography of Josef Labor's music.
