I'm not a fan, but I just got hold of a pile of cds featuring his work, including all symphonies, concertos, string quartets, and a lot more. I've always 'liked' the 10th symphony, as it has its moments. 5th symphony and the Violin Concerto seem ok. What more is worth checking out from a metal perspective? I can upload anything of course.

Great! What calmness and depth... The unrest and tension so abundant in other quartets seem to serve a purpose here. The ´Chamber Symphony´ arrangement of this piece is amazing as well.
