It's not the top 10, actually top 50, but you can start with this compilation, I think it pretty much sumps up some of the greatest classical pieces out there. It's been recored by the London Philharmonic Orchestra with conductor David Parry.
I don't know if you're still around, but I found a perfect video for you! :)
A couple of classical violinists (Twoset Violin) suggesting 10 (lesser-known) pieces worth a listen. They will also describe the piece and sometimes talk about the background of this or that piece.
Here is the video:
There are also english subtitles. :)
I was about to give play buttons, but I found out that some are full albums and.. yeah. That's the list of pieces they talk about: 1. Mahler - Symphony no.5 2. Bach - Mass in B minor 3. Brahms - Violin Concerto 4. Ravel - La Valse 5. Richard Strauss - Death and Transfiguration 6. Shostakovich - Symphony no.5 7. Schubert - Trout Quintet 8. Stravinsky - The Rite of Spring 9. Debussy - La Mer 10. Tchaikovsky - Piano Concerto
Hope you find it helpful! :)
