Symphonic Addict:
Méhul, Onslow and Reinecke do come to my mind regarding composers from 1800-1880. I've enjoyed their respective symphonies.

+1 for Onslow. He also wrote an inordinate number of string quartets and quintets.

Irons:

For a "really lesser-known" composer there is a surprising amount of recordings available, SA. I understand piano was his forte, of which there are a few of Bentzon playing his own compositions.

Shame. Thanks for info.
