Corrigliano's Clarinet Concerto. Commissioned in 1977 I think for & recorded by Drucker. Amazing technique.

I find Esenvalds's 'Visions of Arctic: Night', a kind of clarinet concerto, to be very moving. Also votes from me too for Vaughan Williams's oboe and tuba concertos and for Rautavaara's Flute Concerto:
"Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm" (Churchill).

'The test of a work of art is, in the end, our affection for it, not our ability to explain why it is good' (Stanley Kubrick).
