Some music is too exciting to stitch to, some music just puts you to sleep. One of my favourites are String Quartets. Most of Mozart's string quartets are about right for me. This is an old performance (1991) of the Emerson Quartet. I find it just right for cross stitching.
And here is a Russian composer who is new to me, Cesar Cui, he was a friend of Borodin. He only wrote one sonata for piano and violin but I really like it.
