    It's been a recent discovery. I fell in love with it instantly. There are some choral passages quite gorgeous.

    I'm a big fan of Yoshimatsu, I love all of his works I've listened to so far. His music is fresh, modern, somewhat minimalistic but very approachable and never boring.

    The "Florentine" Symphony of Josef Rheinberger (Liechtenstein) is worth a listen. Full of beautiful melody. The second theme of the first movement, in particular, is burrowed into my brain. (Help! it's driving me sane! )

    Can you tell me where that is? I hear something special at 4:15 and 5:30. It sometimes takes me a few listenings to pick out 2nd themes.

    Aren't you afraid of being driven sane??? The fiendish passage makes its first appearance at 2:15

    I hope I'm not cheating by suggesting Lalo's "Symphonie Espagnole". It inspired Tchaikovsky to write his violin concerto.

    Well, actually, it's very well known

    I have not seen this "Symphony" mentioned anywhere on this thread yet.

    KARL GOLDMARK (1830-1915)
    Rustic Wedding Symphony,Op.26 (1875)

    Whilst possibly well-known in these forums, this was new to me.

    I like it, very much.

    I think it's pretty well known. I've even heard it on the radio occasionally.

    (And just in case anyone was ready to write-off Sir Paul...)

    PAUL MCCARTNEY (1942)
    Working Classical (1999)

    I listen to this album more than The Beatles or McCartney's subsequent popular output.

    Whilst I do hear the familiar echoes of past masters in this work, I do believe Sir Paul has his own, unique orchestral voice.

    I have chosen Track 2 "A Leaf", to introduce any newcomers.

    ^ no matter whether one likes this or not, it is not a symphony.
