      • The slow movement is excellent, though not original in the sense of some contemporaries like Brahms. Incidentally, it was used as theme music for Alistair Cooke’s “America” series.

      • I doubt you could have composed something better. The best music was composed by 1900, anything post 1900 is utter garbage.

    • Well at least it is miles better than the usual atonal serial post modern drivel. It does actually have some wee tunes in it. All it needs is Liam O’Flynn on the pipes.

  • Love it!
