By "Little Masterpieces", I mean relatively short (for prog), (mostly) instrumental pieces that seem to punch well above their weight. The list below is in no particular order:
 
 
Sebastian Hardie - Windchase - Hello Phimistar
 
 
 
Manfred Mann's Earth Band - The Roaring Silence - Waiter, There's a Yawn in My Ear
 
 
 
Rush - Moving Pictures - YYZ
 
 
 
Genesis - Wind & Wuthering - ...In That Quiet Earth
 
 
 
Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Tarkus - Infinite Space (Conclusion)
 
 
 
Hawkwind - Warrior on the Edge of Time - Opa Loka
 
 
 
There are others that I could include, but the above will do for now.
 
Do you have any other examples to add to the list?

No, I know how to behave in the restaurant now, I don't tear at the meat with my hands. If I've become a man of the world somehow, that's not necessarily to say I'm a worldly man.

Nice idea. I just went for the first ones popped into my mind. + Forgot about the instrumental bit, while thinking.

I'm sure I could think of many more given enough time but this is the first thing I thought of when reading the OP:

An epic you could make a full length (weird and unsettling) art house film of - in just four minutes and seventeen seconds. A complete little masterpiece:

Nice list. I think I know all of these. I'm glad to see some Pavlov's Dog on there too. Not everyone seems to be familiar with them.

On another thread, I've posted a track from Miki Petkovski's 1979 solo album "Ko zna." He is a classically trained pianist, and his compositions are just perfect.
Petkovski composed this instrumental masterpiece titled "Tegoba," which found place on ex-Yugoslav band Smak's second album, "Crna dama," from 1977, where he played Steinway piano and Minimoog synthesizer.

Present-time progressive music should not be neglected. Bartosz Ogrodowicz is a contemporary prog-rock artist from Poland.
"Forsaken" is an instrumental from his 2010 solo debut album of the same name, where Ogrodowicz's excellent synthesizer playing and opening drum rhythm formed the basis of a great yet not long instrumental track. After the melody plays for a while, it transitions into a powerful section with a fantastic synthesizer solo and great drum sounds.
Ogrodowicz was only 22 years old when he recorded this little masterpiece.
