You know, I don't seem to ever get tired of HvK's 1962 recording of LvB's 1st Symphony, as weird as that may sound.

You're a weirdo

I honestly try not to be; it just comes out that way!

[...] but I always keep coming back to Bach's Goldbergs, WTC, and the organ works.  Emotionally, Bach is my home.

Ditto.

Shostakovich's 10th, especially conducted by HVK from either the 50's or the later 80's one.

Tchaik 4 under the hands of HvK
Bruckner 8 under the hands of HvK
Beethoven 7 under hands of HvK
Mahler 5 under the hands of HvK

Is it just me or are we starting to see a pattern here... 8)

Beethoven's 7th and 9th.

Toss in the Brahms 4 and I think that's my answer.

Balafireff's first symphony. I just love it.

The real Neverending Symphonic Story & Unfinished for me:

Ralph Vaughan Williams, A Pastoral Symphony (his World War I 'Requiem')

Some other options would be:

Vaughan Williams 5, 6, 8, 9
Tubin 4, 6, 8
Holmboe 6, 7, 8
Brian 1, 6, 8
Arnell 3, 4, 5
Mendelssohn Bartholdy 4
Braga Santos 3, 4
Andriessen 3
Nielsen 5
Bruckner 8.5
Englund 4
Tchaikovsky 6
Zweers  3
Diamond 3
Beethoven 3
Gibbs 3
Shostakovich 15
Wilms 6
Simpson 9
Vasks 2
Haydn 105
Moeran 2
Saint-Saëns 3
Goossens 1
Dvorak 9
Arnold 5, 7, 9
Vermeulen 2
Mahler 6
… music is not only an 'entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.    RVW, 1948

Haydn 102 must have been mentioned before so I will go for Hartmann 6. Utterly manic but also utterly compelling.
