Classical (non CG) music that everyone should hear!

Talk about things that are not necessarily related to music or the guitar.

I like Schubert's Fantasie in C for Violin and Piano (D. 934) with Jennifer Koh playing the violin.

Anything by Fauré, but especially the Requiem. For lesser known stuff (I am not the most experienced musician here so maybe my idea of lesser known is different from yours) Libby Larsen’s Missa Gaia (I like choral music) and as I mentioned on another thread anything by William Grant Still— my new discovery. Apparently he is new— not just for me but for a lot of classical music lovers.

Beethoven, late string quartets. How has this not been mentioned yet?
Luigi Boccherini wrote reams of music, including string quintets with guitar. (I haven't heard a version of these that is memorable to me.) But the string symphonies played by I Solisti Veniti conducted by Claudio Scimone are incredibly alive.

The term "classical" is rather loosely adhered to in these suggestions. So I'll offer up Frank Zappa's Sofa #1.
Have you heard the Decca recording of the Boccherini Guitar Quintets with Pepe Romero and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble?

I was going to recommend the Bach Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor. But speaking of interpretation I have heard the Bach Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor played by Daniel Chorzempa, and by others. Not one of them can touch any rendition by E. Power Biggs.

It's been a while since I've heard the Boccherini guitar quartets but I don't think it was the recording you mention. I put it on my 'to hear' list along with E Power Biggs' version of Bach's passacaglia and fugue.

Thank you both for the suggestions.
