Shos, I've never been much of a Webern fan. His pieces are all too short, and it seems like just as they start to get interesting, they end. Most of his work sounds like background music to something.
The 2nd and 6th movements of his Opus 6 Orchestral pieces are interesting to me, and I think you might find something there to appreciate. The Opus 5 String Quartet also has some interesting sections. The Opus 21 Symphony sounds like a long introduction to something, but it never gets going. A lot of his music sounds similar and after a few minutes, you don't want to hear any more. Maybe that's why most of it is so short.
Tim, I still like much of Hindemith.
