Moses und Aron (English: Moses and Aaron) is a three-act opera by Arnold Schoenberg with the third act unfinished. The German libretto is by the composer after the Book of Exodus. Hungarian composer Zoltán Kocsis completed the last act, with Schoenberg's heirs' permission, in 2010, but as of 2014 Moses und Aron was almost always performed as Schoenberg left it in 1932, with only two of the planned three acts completed.

Pierre Boulez's 1974 recording of Schoenberg's brooding opera is sure to fascinate the audience for 20th-century music, but other opera lovers will probably find the disc somewhat tedious. Moses und Aron is a very curious work. Musical motives are mirrored in ramifications, but the overall conception is essentially plastic, rather than developmental or dramatic. Such a static canvas provides intriguing challenges for both the opera house and its audience. Gunter Reich as Moses and Richard Cassilly as Aron sing powerfully. Moses und Aron" is a very unusual opera, with no lead female singers. The only lead singing role is Aron, a high tenor. The part of Moses, for bass voice, is written in "Sprechstimme," a speaking-singing.

Pierre Boulez at the Donaueschinger Musiktage 2008 with the SWR Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg. He remained active as a conductor over the next six years. In 2007 he was re-united with Chéreau for a production of Janáček's From the House of the Dead (Theater an der Wien, Amsterdam and Aix).

Pierre Boulez has recorded it twice, with his first version (Sony, with Gunther Reich and Richard Cassilly in the title roles) now edged out of favour by the far better recorded and played version he made in conjunction with the Stein production in Amsterdam. David Pitman-Jennings is the later Moses and Chris Merritt an eloquently plausible Aron, while the playing of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is both stunningly accurate and remarkably beautiful. Key Recording: Boulez (Deutsche Grammophon 449 174-2, two CDs).
