I do seem to have enjoyed the 8th the last time I listened to it. I should revisit the 6th and Violin Concerto No. 2, but, unfortunately, I don’t think I have the stamina. ;) ;D
I think that 6 and 7 are better than 8 but maybe VC No.2 is best of all, especially the last few minutes.

Yes, I recall the last part of the 2nd VC includes a ‘meditation’ if you will on one of his Barefoot Songs. I recall this section being particularly moving.
