Both the Pergolesi & Caldara are fine pieces of music.
Which recordings do you have my friend?
Pergolesi: Andreas Scholl / Barbara Bonney / Les Talents Lyriques, Christophe Rousset

Caldara: Patricia Petibon / Francesca Pedaci / Laura Polverelli / Sergio Foresti / Athestis Chorus, Europa Galante, Fabio Biondi

Schoenberg: Gurrelieder (Abbado/VPO) - Not sure I like some of Abbado's soloists quite as well as on some other recordings, but instrumentally this is wonderful.

Taneyev's Piano Concerto, with Tchislenko, Anisimov and Karpinsk SO. So gorgeously and Russianly romantic... Exquisite!

What label?  I'm only aware of the recent Toccata Classics recording.

Claude Vivier: Lonely Child (1980) for soprano and orchestra (De Leeuw/Narucki/Schoenberg and ASKO Ensembles) - Haunting work with particularly expressive writing for brass and percussion, and gorgeous work by Susan Narucki, one of the best singers around committed to contemporary music.  Vivier died far too young (1948-83).  A very good review by edward, here.

Pavel Haas: Study for String Orchestra (1943) (Frieder Obstfeld/Westfälische Kammerphilharmonie) - Sort of reminds me of Hindemith, in the best way.

Taneyev's Violin Concerto (Gorelov, Borodin, Kurgan SO - dunno the label, Don :) )

Same commentary as above.
