This led Veress to a free handling of intervals and to the combination of half or whole tones independent of tonality. As early as his first String Quartet he made use of a set of twelve tones, which were orientated to a tonal centre, i.e. a central tone, not a harmonic tonic. Veress worked in many genres, including arrangements of songs for choirs (strongly influenced by folk music); chamber music, (such as his Musica concertante for twelve solo strings and Orbis tonorum for chamber ensemble); concertos for violin, piano (Hommage à Paul Klee), oboe (Passacaglia concertante), clarinet, and two trombones (Tromboniade, his last finished work); string quartets; two symphonies and a Sonata for orchestra; large-scale works for choir and orchestra (Sancti Augustini Psalmus and Das Gasklängespiel); two ballets; and works for solo voice (such as the folkloristic cycle Canti Ceremissi).
