If you haven't seen it, I think you should check out Hangover Square from 1945. Very good movie, and I LOVE the piano concerto that is played in the end.

To answer my own question:

I think that Mozarts clarinettconcerto and Haydns trumpetconcerto are very important, as they both are soloconcerti for instruments that was new in the classical era.

Maybe, maybe not.
