Classical music recommendations for a listener of free jazz?

I listen to a very wide variety of music, but one giant gap in my knowledge is classical music. I'm looking for recommendations for classical music to check out (either specific albums, works, or composers). To narrow it down a bit, how about something from any era that would be of interest to someone with an appreciation for avant-garde/free jazz from the 60s (think Coleman, later Coltrane, Shepp, Taylor... heck, even Brotzmann)? And preferably music that's available on streaming services.

Looking for an album called 'Wings'

Do you remember the 'concept album' from the late 70s (?) called 'Wings'? Nothing to do with Paul McCartney, this was a 'crossover' production, mixing jazz and classical. The word 'wings' is so generic that Googling isn't helping me at all. If I just had the composer's name, I'd be able to hunt up a copy ... (I remember being wowed by the music back then, and would like to re-visit it.)

Recommend music that combines jazz with baroque classical.

In Nina Simone's "Love Me or Leave Me" she plays a piano solo that incorporates a bit baroque* classical piano. Makes sense, since she was trained as a classical pianist, and the effect is wonderful. Please recommend some other songs or artists that use this kind of jazz/baroque combo. * Disclaimer: I'm not a classical music expert, so I may have the terminology wrong. I welcome your corrections.

Clarinet music recommendations

I love the sound of the clarinet. I'm looking for quiet, pensive, possibly melancholic music featuring this instrument. Any genre; preferably instrumental. I'm not looking for happy big-band jazz or Poulenc's chaotic clarinet sonata, though I appreciate both. [more inside]
