Counting Music - Chris Lawry
A quirky concert item. Really quite cleaver and inventive.

Enigma Variations - Elgar
Rozhdestvensky conducts. The best. Tempos, balance, detail. Be sure to listen to the finale (starting around 27.40) - note the 'connection' between players and conductor. Amazingly he was a last minute replacement for this proms concert.

From the Bavarian Highlands Op. 27 - Edward Elgar
This is another neglected work by Elgar which also comes into the 'great' category. Hard to believe that Elgar was a self-taught composer.
