Werke ohne Opuszahl ("Works without opus number") (WoO), also Kinsky–Halm Catalogue, is a German musical catalogue prepared in 1955 by Georg Kinsky and Hans Halm,[1] listing all of the compositions of Ludwig van Beethoven that were not originally published with an opus number, or survived only as fragments.

The abbreviation WoO is also used sometimes to refer to works without opus by other composers,[2] such as Johannes Brahms, Robert Schumann,[3] Muzio Clementi, or Joachim Raff.[4]
