I'll post my list in increments so it's interesting. With reasons, in no particular order.

1. Charles Koechlin - Les Hueres Persanes. It's a strange, alluring, polytonal masterpiece for the piano, and is truly unique in its method, and the moods it brings.

Wow, I didn't realize Webern composed that many pieces. Maybe squeeze in a couple of works by Ives and Carter.  ;D

Anyone who think this over and type out all the selections probably has too much time at hand.  $:)

But there's no thinking required - sort of an automatic response.

I forgot to put any Scriabin on the list - should have added the Op. 11 Preludes which constitute the beautiful and sensuous music ever written.

Let's keep it simple:

Webern, Op. 1-30.
But how can you leave off the Second Cantata (op 31) and the wonderful orchestration of the Ricercare a 6 from the Musical Offering?
