La Lettre à Élise by Ludwig van Beethoven ... cause it's the only classical composition from this century I can play fluently on a piano.

It sounds extremely nice on a piano but it sucks on violin.Only thing I can compare it to is like playing caprice No.24 by Niccolo Paganini on piano.Elise is just not made for violin or any other instrument other than piano.
You like Beethoven in general?

Oh there are way too many to pick from... Here's a selection:

Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 (especially the first movement)
Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 1 (I sense a pattern here...)
Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2
Beethoven's Ninth (that last movement...)
Grieg's Peer Gynt
Debussy's Clair de Lune
Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture
Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake (all of it; I was lucky enough to watch it performed live in St. Petersburg)
Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries
Habanera from Bizet's Carmen
Pie Jesu from Fauré's Requiem
Méditation from Massenet's Thaïs


I could seriously go on all night.

These compositions are wonderful,I'm sure you will love ''Semi-Canonical Great Feud".I highly prefer you to listen to it,if you search for it than you should look up for the version by Aaron Carpenter on Strad viola,it wasn't composed in 19th century though.
Hungarian dance no.5 is very nice too,I love how Brahms composed it.

The Sunken Cathedral ~ No. 10 in Debussy's first book of Preludes.
