And then there's Ronald Stevenson's 75+-minute Passacaglia on DSCH, whose
final fugue has three subjects: DSCH, BACH and the Dies Irae.
Have I missed it, or has nobody mentioned Lucian Berio's magnificent
Sinfonia? The third movement is based on the third mvt of Mahler 2,
with quotations from more composers than I can recall - certainly
Beethoven's Pastoral, Strauss's Rosenkavelier, Debussy's La Mer,
Stockhausen's Gruppen and many more.
