Elgar, Wolf, Sibelius, Scriabin, and Schoenberg.
Du sollst schlechte Compositionen weder spielen, noch, wenn du nicht dazu gezwungen bist, sie anhören.

Another case where considering my listening for the past four weeks made for ease of selection:

Debussy, Nielsen, Rakhmaninov, Sibelius & Vaughan Williams (Schoenberg a near sixth here, as Brahms was for the other time-frame)

Debussy the most here. Strauss (mainly for his beautiful songs), Holst (the Planets but also his modest & refined chamber music), Schoenberg & Satie.
