I first listened to this symphony many years ago (in 2000 maybe) on national TV: they were broadcasting a classical (gasp!) music concert that included this work among others. I remember I was amused thinking, look at all these aged musicians working hard to perform the work of a teenager 🙂
I liked it enough to remember its catalog number and remembered it long enough to pick it up again in 2009 when I was transcribing at full throttle, with an eye to my favourite pieces.
And there I was, years later, in a similar position as those orchestral gentlemen, transcribing the same teenager’s work 🙂
True genius never dies, but is also forever young!
