Yes, and just whose idea was that?!   :D

I included the opening and final movements of the First, and the slow movement of the Sixth: I don't think they get enough respect, like Rodney Dangerfield!

Cato, this movement (the Adagio of the 6th is only a very recent 'discovery').  Starting to warm up to the 6th, as a whole, but particular that Adagio movement.

I have always been astounded by the unusual, almost eccentric character of the Sixth, ever since I first came across it almost 50 years ago.  And yes, that Adagio, with the little funeral march, and the way it ascends to a a resigned, if not quite blissful, repose at the end: now that is the definition of genius!   :o

In my comic novel in progress, there is a scene where a young organist transcribes it for the funeral of a child killed in a bicycle accident.  (Which scene does not sound very comical, but you must read the whole thing to understand the context!)

I'm glad to see the 6th get some much deserved recognition. Like Sibelius's 6th, this symphony really stands out as one of the unheralded masterpieces in symphonic history I think. That Adagio alone in Bruckner's 6th is enough to boost it's high rating. I'm also quite fond of the 5th and 9th. Both of these symphonies resonate with me. I also voted for the Adagio for the 7th, which is so gorgeous. For the 9th, I voted for all of the movements, because I think each one of them is masterpiece within itself. The last movement, especially, is heart-rendering. Those climaxes with those huge brass chorales will leave a person breathless.

No votes for the finale of the 7th - my whinges about this symphony are incontrovertibly proven to be correct :P
