As Saint Saens said,"I produce music like an apple tree produces apples".
This extremely gifted man produced music like a hundred apple trees. I never heard a piece I didn't like and every piece was an original.
A great loss, not sure what his last numbered symphony but perhaps somewhere around 32?

According to the link in OP, Slonimsky leaves 8 operas, 34 symphonies and a warehouse full of chamber music.
