Percussion has long been a big part of the Classical mainstream.

In the first movement of what some people say the finest Symphony of the 20th Century, Neilsen's fifth, the percussion is ordered to stop the rest of the orchestra!

One of Ive's symphonies has marching bands in it deliberately out of sync, which makes great percussion.

Default Bartok Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion

I love Cage and Varese but this one is off the scale

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pydEoJI8X84

One of the finest pieces in the repertoire

Also forgot two highly rhythmic and percussive pieces by Shostakovich

Cello Concerto 1 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tG0laIxC0Lo

and the final movement of Symphony 15

Thanks Chesya!
The Bartok piece is great.
I have to admit I'm hardly familiar with his music.
