    At the very end of the last thread, genesisfan, from Santiago, Chile, posted:
    Mahler by Bernstein, in this inexpensive box set: http://www.amazon.com/Mahler-Comple...=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1287098922&sr=1-2

    Don't listen to #2, 3, 4, or 8, though. They have singing.

    Boston Skyline went under last year and they sold out of this CD in 2006
    Used like new cheapest you can find it is $40

    Don't know if anyone has previously commented on, or is familiar with this one, but trust me, listen for 10 seconds and you'll be there for an entire hour. Talk about music that puts you "right there!"

    Williams, Vaughan
    Sinfonia Antartica
    1985 / 1986
    EMI Records
    CDC 7 47516 2
    U.K.
    Performed by London Philharmonic Orchestra


    BRILLIANT!!!!!

    I have this symphony in the Boult Vaughan Willliams 8CD box. I like it. Sometimes you can find it at a good price.

    Boult's earlier Decca (mono) cycle from the 1950s was reissued on two 5CD-sets, one by Belart in the 1990s and one by Decca in 2002. Does anyone know how the sound on these sets is?

    How's the sound Simon? I have read bad things about the MLP SACD's, and I'm not crazy about the couple of MLP Redbooks from the 90's I have either.

    In response to:

    Ones that come immediately to mind and that might fill the bill would be, in no particular order:

    Schubert: Symphonies 8 ("Unfinished") and 9 ("Great C Major")
    Beethoven: Symphony no. 6 ("Pastoral")
    Mozart: Symphony no. 40
    Brahms: Symphonies 2 and 4

    So, what did you think?

    Schubert and Brahms were the first two composers that came to my mind, but I would have picked Brahms 3'd. And although they are not technically symphonies, can I suggest the Barber Adagio and the Vaughan Williams Variations on a Theme by Thomas Tallis?

    My vote for "beautiful, haunting symphonies without singing":
