... an opening of those magic casements ...

Except that the title will be regarded as a name, not as a number, and 'quotation marks' or other typographical means will be used to indicate the difference. 'Symphony No. 485' is not the same as Symphony No. 485.

… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.  RVW, 1948

Quite. Can't see what the fuss is about.


Right.  And I assume you don't mind Dvorak's New World Symphony is labeled as No. 5 because of its publishing order rather than No. 9 as the last symphony he wrote...the culmination of his symphonic output?

Not really. Doesn't alter the symphony. The numbering of Mendelssohn's symphonies is according to their date of publication: 1 (1831); 2 (1841); 3 (1843); 4 (1851); 5 (1868) - in order of composition they are: 1,5,3,4,2. In order of first performance they are: 1,5,4,2,3. I don't see that it matters that much. And in the end it is surely up to Penderecki how he wants his symphonies numbered.

You are probably right.  I will start having 9 entries in my top ten lists.
