    Roger:

    Are you sure you want to include Harold in Italy and the Lalo Cello Concerto? Harold has over 40 recordings on the market and the Lalo over 30, far more than for every other work on your list. Of course, it's your call, and I would love to give major points to the Berlioz.

    Good point -- I didn't know those works had so many recordings! Could we replace them with:

    Farrenc - Overture in e minor op. 23
    Bériot - Violin Concerto no. 2
