AnthonyAthletic:
Soundscapes everywhere for sure!

Check out the 11th and its eerie contrast of quietness, the building of tension and the eruption during the attack scene in the second movement, then the calm which follows the chaos, then back to the unnerving finale, after all that's gone before.

This for me is the most discriptive piece of music ever written, just a personal choice.  The plight of the people in this work is better than any visual could ever offer.   ;)

Brewski:
I must have a half-dozen recordings of the Tenth (not the one you have), and it is an incredible piece, to be sure.  I especially like von Karajan's nail-biting first recording (from the 1960s), and Dohn├ínyi's with Cleveland (early 1990s), which also has some really magnificent playing. 



Also, if you like the recording, you must hear it in person sometime.  You will go nuts.

His stuff is like an exact combination of what late Penderecki and Prokofiev would sound like, i just thought of that.

yep, that's the last one to listen to for me

my library has his piano concertos yeahhhhhhhhh

enjoying his 4th right now. Isn't that part where the strings come in and play those scales in tremolos (that's also where i'm talking about that it sounds like there's a million strings playing in a tunnel) and then builds up so cool?

and my favorite part in any of his symphonies might be that build-up in the 2nd which is similar, it's just purely demonic  >:D
