A new volume of the Critical Edition of Schönberg’s Compositions, Series B (edited by Ulrich Krämer), contains documents and sketches concerning Schönberg's Serenade op. 24.

The volume contains for the Serenade op. 24, the Editorial Report, the sketches for the work and its genesis and history, including the most important documents. The work's tangled source situation connected with the pivotal re-orientation of Schoenberg's compositional creativity at the beginning of the 1920s reflects the procedural character of the compositional genesis of the work and required a painstaking reconstruction of the separate phases of this process stretching over a time period of altogether nearly three years.
