I played this piece, and our conductor went on and on about how it was a forgotten masterpiece or some shit and nobody cared about it anymore. was annoying shit, but great piece though
cello part is killer in the second movement

Fucking Ringo man, don't give me none of it
If I hadn't been given an Itunes voucher and needed to spend it on something, I would never have bought this album.
Anyway, started the New Year with a real exploration of Liszt's sacred music (plus late-Liszt as a personality) and it's fascinating stuff. Christus has to be one of the finest oratorios in the repertoire and really deserves to be performed more often.
8th is my favourite Thoven symphony. 4th movement is nothing short of spectacular.
And conductors from Wagner onwards have been interested in the second movement as a touchstone for conducting ability
It just suffers from the curse of the even-numbered Beethoven symphony. And is sandwiched between the giants of the 7th and the 9th

Anyone have any experience with šulek?
I only know of him because of his trombone sonata, but really want to get into his other stuff. Anyone know any good places to start? I've only heard his symphony no.8 so far
He was quite literally the grandfather of all neckbeards.
