4. Yes, Bartok is good to play for people who "don't like" classical music
Also Varese, whom I should have mentioned as also vastly underrated, but didn't even think of him before.

Ionisation is a great way to introduce people to the other world of classical music. "Hey - is that a siren?" "Yes, the piece is scored for siren" "Cool. Didn't know you could do that. Turn it up."

They're good composers for showing, especially to people who like heavy metal, that classical isn't all boring oboe concerti and Vivaldi's "Summer" and fat people singing, but can actually be really exciting and cranking.

Faure's chamber music is great.
