I recently gave a two CD set of Classical music to a friend who wasn’t at all familiar with Classical.
He reported that Dvorak’s Humoresque “got him”
In the whole repertoire of those two CD’s – including Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Liszt, Chopin, Schumann, Schubert etc. etc.
This is the only piece he mentioned that really moved him! So I went to jimsclassicalmusic.com and found there wasn’t a single Dvorak piece! Now there’s two.
Humoresque op. 101 no. 7
Drobnosti Trio / allegro moderato
Dvorak trio drobnosti allegro

Almost every violinist plays the piece on the famous Kreisler’s arrangement for violin and piano. Of course he recorded it, but what few know is that he also recorded the original piece on piano.
