    The delightful first movement of Dvorak’s 8th Symphony (except, sorry, by Karajan who plays it too bombastic, charmless, and loud). Also the first movement of Mendelssohn's sparkling Italian Symphony. The Largo of Dvorak’s 9th Symphony. I find them irresistible and they get me every time.

    Yes, and for me, all four movements possess endearing qualities.

    Pettersson's symphonies have no movements/breaks, so can I nominate all Pettersson's as my favs?

    I'd take the first movements of Mahler 9/10, with Der Abschied as a runner-up. There are so many great movements in the repertoire, but none that touch me quite as much as these (though I prefer listening to them in context).
