    Sibelius´s 2nd Symphony blows me away.

    To me, it is one of the most beautiful pieces of music, especially the last movement.

    Discounting opera ouvertures, the Konzertstück is probably Weber's best instrumental piece and an important model for later similar concertante pieces not quite following the earlier model with separate movements.

    Scriabin: The Poem of Ecstasy (1908), Philharmonia/Salonen, London Proms August 20, 2010 on YT

    I hadn't listened to this work for a long time. I love the clarity and energy of this performance. The piece is to me a kind of pinnacle of the symphonic poem, even though Scriabin's style is unique and personal.

    I giggled at this because the embedded video showed only partial title: "Symphony in F-sh"

    That's amusing. It's kinda in F, but not specifically so.
