It's true, the 9th sounds like a promising work. Glazunov was seeking his most personal facet with his last symphonies.
Yes, I agree with that as well. No. 8 has a sense of tragedy about which is unlike any of the earlier symphonies, enjoyable as they are. The only movement of No.9 conveys great sadness I think.
