This upcoming release from Musiques Suisses will feature Hermann Suter's Symphony in D minor, op. 17 (already recorded before by Sterling, but it's always great to have another recording) and Werner Wehrli's(1892-1944) "Chilbizite" for orchestra (first recording of a piece by a composer of whom I have never heard of before) Smiley. The performers are The Aargauer Symphonie Orchester under Douglas Bostock. Should be interesting to hear this CD, especially the Wehrli piece!

The Wehrli appears to be an Overture from 1917 by a composer who wrote, apparently, very little orchestral music.

(See the list on Klassika, referenced in the German Wikipedia article).

The title of the Wehrli overture must sound rather strange to anybody who doesn't speak Swiss German. 'Chilbi' refers to a funfair and 'Zite' simply means times. The only other orchestral piece by this composer that I am aware of is the lovely Sinfonietta for Flute, Piano and strings, op. 20 (1921). It came out on a Jecklin CD (Szene Schweiz JS 297-2) in 1993 - together with the Symphony no. 8 'Seldwyla' by Robert Blum (1900-1994) and the Double Concert for Piano, Violoncello and Orchestra by Peter Mieg (1906-1990) and may still be available from the Mieg foundation:
