ANTON VON WEBERN FAVOURITES

Schumann: Faust-Szenen

Johann Strauss: Eine Nacht in Venedig

Puccini: La Fanciulla del West

Mahler: Rückert-Lieder & Das Lied von der Erde

Stravinsky: Pribaoutki & Berceuses du Chat

Beethoven: Trio op.97 "Archduke"

Debussy: Pélleas et Melisande

Berg: Wozzeck


I was surprised at some of his choices, especially LA FANCIULLA:

"... Jalowetz conducted recently Puccini´s LA FANCIULLA DEL WEST. A score of absolutely original sound. Gorgeous. Every bar surprising. Very special sounds. An not a trace of Kitsch! [...] I must say I loved it. [...] Am I going nuts?"
(Letter to Arnold Schönberg, March 27th, 1918)

I´d like to know Schönberg´s answer!

(By the way, I´ve heard Puccini quite admired PIERROT LUNAIRE and some people even say there is a bit of Schönberg in TURANDOT)
