Which Instruments Do Composers Write Solos For?

Below is a sunburst partition of the 25 most-played composers by the New York Philharmonic. The second rung of the sunburst contains the instruments that are most often featured with solos by those composers (up to 10 each). For example, Beethoven and Mozart most often write solos for Piano, but Wagner most often writes solos for a Soprano singer. You can click on a composer's slice to zoom in to that composer.
