Discuss.

I personally love Concerto No. 4 in F minor, Op. 8, RV 297, "L'inverno", by Vivaldi, although the rest of Le quattro stagioni is pretty good as well.

Tchaikovsky's Marche Slave was pretty decent. Flight of the Valkyries was a classic as well.

Oh, my mom loves Tchaikovsky's pieces, particularly Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 35.

A lot of Randy Rhoad's guitar work is inspired by classics. He is actually one of the first neo-classical guitarists.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNOa5Gjh2lc
Malmsteem is also a neo-classical player, also very good.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeX8kD9ybFs
Paul Gilbert, playing some classical with his dumb fucking f hole guitar.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIu7UA-823Y
Steve Morse, current Deep Purple guitarist playing some classical.

These are all good classical pieces.

Get that uncultured guitar shit out of earshot. True classical is played with the violin and other instruments of the age.

Except for that work by Gustav Holst at the end. Despite being too recent, it's OK.

A violin is a guitar missing 2 strings, frets, and has a different tuning and neck length. I guess the violin is uncultured too, since they're both stringed instruments, not to mention the violin has a shorter range of expression than a guitar considering it has 2 strings less and a shorter scale length. (although if you insist upon the violin, listen to Uli Jon Roth, he uses a special gutiar with extra frets that can emulate the sounds of a violin better http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5e5072S-hBg )

Also, the guitar is older than you probably think. The classical guitar was invented around 1600, Bach and Beethoven were both born after 1600. Also, "True Classical" is a really fucking dumb thing to say. While you can argue only old music can be classical, (and by that logic, heavy metal will one day be classical music) classical is actually related to music theory, which is how all music using physical instruments is made. (minus noise music) That doesn't mean anyone who uses music theory is making classical music, but some guitarists study classical music and use music theory to make music similar to classical music, which is where neo-classical comes from.

TL;DR: Classical music on a guitar is composed the same way classical music is composed on a piano or violin.

Colette didn't sound very upset, you take things too seriously and don't understand sarcasm.

Correct. While I don't claim to be a classical music connoisseur, I have a friend who does, and he proclaims there is no classical music after Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring in 1913.

What about Carmina Burana, she is kind of a big deal, 1935.

Well by that logic, all music up to this point will be classical in the future. (Remember the episode of Futurama "A Fishful of Dollars"?)
Your friend obviously is looking at things in a very black and white manner. Classical, like mentioned earlier, is a way of writing music. There is no end to classical music, classical is a CLASSIC WAY OF WRITING, and does not mean ONLY MUSIC THAT IS OLD, if that makes any sense.
I also doubt you even listened to any of those guitarists. Heck, the Paul Gilbert one is literally note for note performances of the likes of Bach.

Music is stupid, how can you define something with all the types of music out there? I don't classify music at this point unless I'm talking with other people, but everything I hear is labelled as either "shit I like to hear" or "shit I don't like to hear".
