My feeling about the Louis Spohr, Symphony #6 in G, Op. 116 (1840). I listened to the Slovak State Philharmonic Orchestra performance.
Caveat - I am not an intellectual re: Music. I want the music to speak or NOT speak directly to me I rarely read linear notes BEFORE listening to a performance hence I was in no position to judge
THE HISTORICAL CLAIMS.
MVMT 1- Melodic beauty and and interesting re-do of melodies
MVMT 2- Rather rambling .
MVMT 3- Pleasant but nothing earth shattering.
MVMT 4- The most pleasant with conisistent fire.
I am most familiar with Spohr's Violin works which I enjoy very much.
