Let's see how this turns out.
Scriabin, Chopin, Ravel, and Handel.

Both, but the Beethoven 2nd so it can wake you up from from the Mendelssohn snooze fest.

 It is said that later in his life he heard a friend practicing it. After listening for some time he said "Whose is that?" "Yours," was the answer. "Mine? That piece of folly mine?" was his retort; "Oh, Beethoven, what an ass you were in those days!"' (Alexander Thayer ed. Forbes (1967), "Life of Beethoven Volume II" (Princeton University Press), p. 324).
