Here's the Spotify playlist: Arnold Schönberg: Op. 1-50, sorted by opus numbers. (Op. 18, 20, 27, 28, 32, 39 and 44 are not available in Spotify at this moment)  Both the original version and orchestral version of Verklärte Nacht and Chamber Symphony No.1 are included.
Also some important works without opus numbers not in the playlist but definitely worth hearing, like the Gurre-Lieder, and the unfinished opera, his master work, Moses Und Aron (not in Spotify for now).

  1. Thanks I love Schoenberg! I have all of his works on cd, but its great to have them all in one neat playlist on Spotify :)


  2. I'd encourage you to add the following very clever video: a commercial spoof for an album of 2nd Viennese School recordings!
    Very well done, indeed.
    And thanks for the list here! Keep up the good work!

  3. Hi - this is a great list, but I just want to point out a small error: the three folksongs performed by Accentus are not actually the three of Op. 49, but three earlier ones that Schoenberg arranged in 1929 (one of the tunes, "Es gingen zwei Gespielen gut", is common to both sets, but the arrangement is different). The Op. 49 pieces have been recorded alongside the three earlier arrangements on a Naxos disc - - but I can't find this or any other recording of Op. 49 on Spotify (perhaps it's available in the USA, I don't know - I'm in the UK).

    1. Guten Tag!
      Maybe this recording is something for your playlist "Arnold Schönberg..."?
