Maximum spin for the appearance of Sir Malcolm Arnold's A Grand, Grand Overture at the last night of the 2009 BBC Proms.
Minimum spin for the continuing absence of Sir Malcolm Arnold's symphonies from the BBC Proms. The last time one was performed was 1994. It was his Second Symphony. But the appearance in the 2009 season of E. J. Moerans Symphony in G minor does compensate in a small way.
