Regarding late Bruckner Organ Music - Lionel Rogg has arranged the Eighth Symphony for organ (and recorded it (for BIS I think?)). I've always thought that the Seventh and Ninth would easily be suited to arrangement for organ. Any takers?

As to the Sibelius Eighth Symphony, I have a short article by Kari Kilpeläinen which if I remember was published on the internet by the Finnish Music Information Centre, and so I can make it available here also.

Just a couple more:
Duruflé: Piano Sonata
Janacek: Symphony (not the diminutive)
Roussel: Symphony No.5 (A Sea Symphony)
Ravel: Album for the Young (apparently he loved children but didn't write any music other than Ma Mere l"Oye)

I agree that the Sinfonietta is not a symphony. However Janacek DID sketch a symphony from 1923 to 1928 - "Danube Symphony" which has been recorded in an edition by Faltus, Stedron & Trhlik. Personally I think Taras Bulba is really in the form of a three movement symphony.

There are also many suites from the operas created by several conductors, most notably Talich, Jilek, Smolka & Serebrier. Peter Breiner has created a set of six such suites, and these have been recorded by Naxos.

Some of these suites attempt to be 'symphonic', and I reckon Serebrier's Symphonic Metamorphosis based on Vec Makropoulos to be fairly successful.

More of anything by Duruflé. I don't care what, I wouldn't be picky.

Did I miss Tchaikovsky, Bruckner and Mahler's Cello Concerti?
Sorabji's 443' 44.3''...

PS: Just curious of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto been attempted/transcribed on the Cello?

I don't think Bruckner wrote any concerti...nor should he (soloists would probably hate him), maybe except for the organ.

I second that. (I would also like somebody to record his concertos)
