Slightly off the beaten track, but absolutely amazing, is the Symphonie Concertante by Joesph Jongen:  The final Toccata movement will knock your socks off.
 

 
Hindemith's Organ Concerto (and his Kammermusik No.7) is less quirky than his usual works, and shows how skillful he is with orchestral color.
