Violin Mid

what are some exceptions of "usual" classical music? {Details}?

My nomination is one of my new obsessions:
Concerto for cello and bassoon in E minor, RV 409 - Vivaldi

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2061uWoOPac

It is the weirdest concerto I have ever heard... The structure is so abnormal. In the video there is a little info on why it is abnormal and it says (sorry I am not good at translating German.):

This time, the concerto begins with the slow movement. There not only one soloist but two, they go against´╗┐ the orchestra's playing with their music/melody. The perfect exeption of usual classic music.

So what are some other exceptions?
Hmm... must have been another video.... but I cant speak or read spanish and I am sure I saw German...

This is an example of a 'concerto da chiesa' (church concerto). This is a more archaic form than the modern concerto form we owe to Vivaldi. Concerti 'da chiesa' usually have four movements in a slow-fast-slow-fast pattern. It was not particularly unusual at the time it was written (most of Corelli's works fall into this pattern, or close varients of it), but it soon became superceded by the modern three-movement concerto form we know as 'usual' today.

As far works I can think of which break the 'usual' mould, some that spring to mind might be:

Beethoven - Pastoral Symphony (5 movements)
Beethoven - several piano sonatas which fall outside the 'usual' three- or four-movement pattern (especially two-movement ones)
Beethoven - Piano Concerto No 4 - the first concerto ever to start without an instrumental tutti before the entry of the solo instrument
Berlioz - Symphonie Fantastique - what kind of symphony is THAT, they must have thought in 1830
Berlioz - Romeo and Juliet Symphony - more of the same
Berlioz - Harold in Italy - A symphony with a solo viola? What the ...
Haydn - Symphony No 60 (6 movements, the last with crazy re-tuning in the violins mid-movement)
Mahler - symphonies 2, 3, 5, 7, 8 - all of which break the usual four-movement symphony pattern

There are many more examples as one gets into more recent musical history, of course.
