I tried out some Brahms since I read somewhere that was a natural progression from LVB. Nothing excited me too much. I think my biggest problem is how familiar I need to get with a piece before I feel like I really appreciate it.
I never really thought much of Pastoral, for instance, until there was a local performance of it. So I forced myself to listen to it quite a few times before going, which really helps me for some reason. Anyway now I love it. I'm not sure what that means about me, but it makes it really difficult to find new music.
