>  I don't, but these days I tend only to listen to the first movement, which still strikes me as perfect, instead of the second (which bores me, and I wish he'd inserted the wonderful slow movement of the 7th there instead) or the 3rd/4th, which is the most Bronte-esque by far.
>  Even the first movement I listen to quite differently now, since my brother gave me an impromptu lesson on the way it's constructed (I don't think I ever heard the quaver rest at the beginning when I was younger - and what a difference it makes!).
I can't listen to this or Traviata without laughing because I'm reminded 
my brother, who when he was 6 (to about 8, it was a long time), and 
learning the cello, got obsessed with both pieces and listened to them 
non-stop, singing along with the bass parts in his squeaky little-boy voice.
