Quote from: Brian on September 20, 2013, 07:18:36 AMBeethoven - 7thBruckner - 7thDvorak - 3rd, 7thBrahms - 4thElgar - 2ndShostakovich - 6thAtterberg - 3rd (finale), 8thVaughan Williams - 5thI must be the only vote for Dvorak's Third, but it would appeal to anybody who likes the funeral march in Elgar's Second Symphony. There's a similar feverish nightmare-type quality to it.One thing I discovered during this exercise was that many/most of my favorite slow movements are NOT in symphonies! An awful lot are in concertos, some are in chorchestral works, a few are in tone poems, many are in chamber music...

Honegger: Symphony No. 3 'Liturgique'5. Schnittke: Symphony No. 86. Roussel: Symphony No. 37. Myaskovsky: Symphony No. 248. Elgar: Symphony No. 29. Diamond: Symphony No. 410. Tubin: Symphony No. 1
Quote from: kyjo on June 16, 2018, 06:15:43 PMGreat list, Jeffrey. Mine would currently look something like:Arnold: Symphony no. 5Atterberg: Symphony no. 5 (or any of them, really)Braga Santos: Symphony no. 2 (tough choice between the first four)Bruckner: Symphony no. 8Dvořák: Symphony no. 7Elgar: Symphony no. 2Hanson: Symphony no. 3Mahler: Symphony no. 9 (finale)Piston: Symphony no. 2Rachmaninoff: Symphony no. 2Interestingly, three of my favorite symphonists - Shostakovich, Sibelius, and VW - somehow didn't make it onto my list...
