There must be dozens – hundreds even. Before Symphonies got bloated to 70 minute epics they'd have been 20 minutes or so long and would have got chucked out as an afternoon's work by the likes of Haydn or Mozart or countless less well known composers.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP explains:

I like Beethoven's, but it does seem to get carried away in bombast. And like most of his work, it takes forever to end. Not as bad as the 5th, but still…

My favorite has to be Dvorak's New World. It's guaranteed to drag me out of depression. Or deepen it. One or the other. The "Going Home" movement is wonderful.

And don't ask for analysis. I can barely read music. I just know what I like.
