    I appreciate this list. YouTube is also a great place to find obscure symphonies, such as the three by Richard Wetz (a sort of post-Brucknerian flavor).
    Has anyone mentioned the 27 symphonies of Nikolai Myaskovsky? Try No. 18 for a starter.
    I disagree with an earlier comment denigrating Anthony Paine's completion of Elgar's 3rd Symphony. I have listened to it repeatedly (I own five different recordings of it.)
    What about Richard Yardumian, Symphony No. 1?

    Has anybody mentioned Étienne Méhul? He wrote four very good symphonies around the time that Beethoven was working on his fifth. The last two were lost and only rediscovered in 1979.

    Here's a movement from #2.

    Hans Rott's only symphony before madness. Often already mentioned I'm sure.

    Felix Draeseke

    A composer from Liszt's Weimar school, he was fairly big once, particular with the free mp3 symphony at his link under listen to mp3:

    No mention of Jan Baptist Vanhal? He was the cellist during the famous string quartet salon performances recorded in the diary of the Irish tenor, Michael Kelly. The other members of the quartet?

    Joseph Haydn, 1st violin -- Karl Ditters von Dittersdorf, 2nd violin -- Wolfgang Mozart, viola. Vanhal also wrote some terrific music, including this symphony. I think he was best composing in the minor keys ---

    Now THERE'S an all-star line-up. What would this quartet be named today? I have three Vanhal symphonies, all of them just fine if not quite to the top standards of the times.

    I think all 27 symphonies by Myaskovsky are very underrated and ot very well known. My advice towards his symphonies is as simple as practical. Pick a number, the date, your birthday, just a random number. Concentrate on that symphony for a whole week. You will not regret my advice.

    For instance, I just random picked the 4th for this thread. Hear this awesome first movement:



    Or let's go 10 symphonies up to number 14:



    Equally great, isn't it?

    To conclude, here's number 24:
