Off the top of my head: Debussy, Ravel, Bartók, Stravinsky, Schoenberg, Berg, Webern, Varèse, Chopin, Liszt, Mahler, Bruckner, Janáček, Boulez, Ruggles, Scriabin, Fauré, Enescu, Sibelius, Bernstein, R. Strauss, Ligeti, Boulez, Falla, Poulenc, Boulanger, Lutosławski, Szymanowski, Britten, Walton, Mussorgsky, Rachmaninov, Berlioz, Beethoven, Brahms, Messiaen and Takemitsu (although I might have to double check this as I might be missing his songs).

You also have Bach on a stick, don't you?

Ah, yes, indeed! A reprehensible omission on my part.

Exactly what I expected of you, Jeffrey.  :D
Haha  :)
There are probably some others too Andrei (Havergal Brian, Walton, Holst, Bruckner, Rimsky Korsakov?)

Probably only Mahler and Varese as they have a relatively compact output. Of everybody else I have enough.

Varèse and Webern, both several times over. I was going to say Mahler but I don't have the Lieder und Gesänge or Das klagende Lied.

You don’t own all of Stravinsky’s, Schoenberg’s or Berg’s oeuvre?

Since I've been streaming music my big box purchases has dwindled to almost none.  I bought the Stravinsky long brick way back, as well as the Boulez complete Webern, and recently the Boulez complete works.  But I never bought any of those complete editions of the big names: Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, etc.   Most of the ones I'm interested in are available to stream, e.g. Debussy and Ravel

Also a Spotify classical music editor has curated complete chronological playlists of many composers.

Mahler
Stravinsky (if that Sony boxset is it)
Vaughan Williams (EMI Edition)
Tallis (Brilliant)
Victoria ? (complete Sacred works, it that it ?)
Wagner (Solti - did Wagner did anything beyond operas? Not that I have really listened to them yet anyway :-[ )

I think that's it.

Berlioz - Warner box
Brahms - Brilliant
Chopin - Hyperion/Ohlsson
Rachmaninov - Brilliant
Ravel - Warner

That is all but I am probably close on Fauré and Dukas.

Wagner (Solti - did Wagner did anything beyond operas? Not that I have really listened to them yet anyway :-[ )
There is at least one very early and very immature symphony, and I think maybe a concert overture with no opera attached. Find the symphony here if you are worried about missing out ( ;D ) https://www.naxos.com/catalogue/item.asp?item_code=8.573413

Edit: similar story with Richard Strauss, two very very early symphonies, and I believe one of them (the minor key one) has only ever been recorded twice, one on Koch and one on Marco Polo, so collecting the complete R. Strauss would be very challenging.

Saved for streaming  ;D

According to Idagio under Wagner's works (maybe I should have gone there before asking the question  0:) ), there are also a few songs, a polka, some polonaises...  :o

Wagner also wrote two discs (I think) worth of piano music.

Indeed, plus the Siegfried-Idyll, a symphony and a half, some songs (other than the Wesendonck), several concert overtures, the Kinderkathezismus, and choral stuff (including the strange Das Liebesmahl der Apostel). Then there’s his arrangement of Gluck’s Iphigénie auf Aulis (like that, auf Deutsch  ;) ), and really off the beaten track, his arrangements for two violins of themes from Donizetti’s La Favorite.

I think I have it all...what I haven’t been able to locate is the aria he wrote to interpolate in Bellini’s Norma...  The quest continues...:( ::) ;D

Maybe I should have bought a boxset that regroups all that instead of the operas  0:)

There's this set for most but not all of his miscellaneous works


ETA
It seems that my idea that I had all his music was wrong, as there are some things mentioned I know I don't have.

Varèse (for the reason cited above: only 2 discs) and Mahler. That's it, though other composers come close.

(Caveat: I have heard more works than I own.)

I hope you add the complete Debussy and Ravel to this list soon.
