I largely agree with your assessment.

There is no doubt that RVW was a towering figure of British symphonism and we cannot really claim that other composers were not to various degrees in this thrall. That does not however negate the fact that their works are worthy of much greater exposure and that the neglect they have suffered is unjustified. Wordsworth's 5th is, in my opinion, a masterpiece and I am overjoyed to see it finally available on disc.
