Back to the routes of the thread, back to “classic” authors, don’t noticed if Albinoni was already mentioned.

Here “Adagio in G Minor”:



Not so “classical”, but probably still considered more erudite than pop, Joaquín Rodrigo

Here, “Concierto de Aranjuez”:



Edit:

Also from the XX century, Ravel, with his fantastic Bolero:



Edit:

Oh! How could I forgot, going back a “couple” of centuries, still didn’t saw him here:

Gregorio Allegri, Miserere mei

As a former professional musician graduate from high school in a previous life, i agree with all already mentioned.

Only few musicians have capability to play the famous Black Page.
Polyrhythm, dodecaphonism, hexatonic patterns, quarter-tone intervals.....😨
Perhaps the greatest composer of the 20th century.
