All are Symphonies, as it happens:

Vaughan Williams’s first two, respectively Sea and London (Sir Andrew Davis, pictured, conducting) and also this composer’s visionary World War Two Fifth (Martyn Brabbins); Bruckner 8 (Christian Thielemann); Franz Schmidt’s Fourth (Paavo Järvi); and, last but not least, Prokofiev #2 (Andrew Litton).

Six of the best!
