There are now at least ELEVEN (!) guitar concerti, so could not one of those be arranged and elaborated?

I was actually thinking of arranging his estudios sencillos for piano but haven't had the time.

The Brahms Third Piano Concerto after the Violin Concerto

http://www.channelclassics.com/dejanbrahms.html

Well, a few brief moments sounded good to me. It's a piece I know inside out since a very close friend used to play it a great deal. And so I suspect I will always want to hear the violin in this piece, and will always hear my friend's playing in my head. Still, the Beethoven Piano Concerto 6 after his Violin Concerto works exceedingly well, so why not?

Sounds a bit like Rachmaninoff/Warenberg: Piano Concerto "no 5" after the 2nd Symphony

Personally I think this one works quite well.

First off, I would like to add:

Scriabin: 'Mysterium' (the complete work composed entirely by him; quite apart from the very intriguing efforts by Alexander Nemtin to expand Scriabin's sketches).

Jehan Alain: symphonies, concertos, anything really.

Tournemire: choral music (I'm thinking more for the church setting than on stage with orchestra)

Alkan: organ symphony

Reger: I think an organ concerto could be quite interesting

Respighi: organ symphony or concerto (his Suite for organ and string orchestra notwithstanding)

As another contributor has already said, the list seems endless really...

Xenakis - Piano Concerto?
You think if he names keqrops or synaphai as Piano Concerto. Would get more performances?

opera oneirifica

Operas by Gesualdo, Barbara Strozzi, Sorabji, or Chopin

being more specific with regards to history, Varese's opera with a libretto by Artaud

Chopin - Symphony... only if his orchestrations were at least as good as franchomme.
Might had made a lot of mazurkas for orchestra..

Mussorgsky - Piano Concerto

That's all I can think of right now... but, I think that a piano concerto by Mussorgsky would have been extremely interesting.

Time for the 'Pieces that should-N't have been written...' thread? Personally, I think 'Carmina Burana' should be written orff.

Well, I did in fact suggest the same idea previously in this thread (20th. July).
Apart from Mahler 8, Cage 4'33" would also have to go into my personal Room 101.
