The 9th just gets richer and richer in my opinion. I don't think there are any "bad" VW symphonies, though the 'Antarctica' has never interested me a lot, but I find the two most neglected, the 'Pastoral' and the 9th, are among my favourites. He seems to grow in stature yearly. When I was at school, the only example we had played to us was the insipid 'Fantasia on Greensleeves', which is (a) not his tune and (b) not his arrangement. Why couldn't they have played the first movement of the 4th or 6th? Teenagers would love those
