You seemed to enjoy the last list so much, I’ve made another.

Here are 10 more overlooked classics.

By “overlooked” I don’t necessarily mean unknown, though some of the pieces are that, too. I mean that they don’t seem to turn up on concert programs with any regularity. I have relied on my thirty-plus years of concert-going for that judgement, as well as my knowledge of what groups other than the ones I normally hear perform.

So, we can debate “overlooked” in one or two cases, I suppose, but I’m right.

Also, I’ve tried to pick some very good recordings of the overlooked pieces.

(Obiter dictum: I’m trying to break the 100,000 threshold for hits this month. Supporters of classical music, or anyone else for that matter, can click through my list as many times as they want. I get 10 hits for every time you click through. Go ahead, freak my editors out.)
