    Schnittke: Symphony #4 [1983]
    Schnittke: Symphony #6 [1992]
    Schnittke: Symphony #8 [1994]

    I won't be adding anything for the next few days, so kindly allow me to cheat. Now we have all of Schnittke's symphonies (excluding the unfinished Ninth); it is an extremely consistent cycle where almost every work is a full-blown masterpiece.

    It'll probably be 3 days before I get around to adding them, so this is fine. Thanks for including the dates! I like the idea of using brackets for the dates....

    Mine for the day is:

    Bach: Harpsichord Concerto #6 in F, BWV 1057
