I'm going to kick off this board by mentioning two upcoming Toccata Classics CDs just announced today on their website Smiley! The contents of the CDs are, as of now, unknown, but I will post them once I am able to find them out. No orchestral music, I know, but these two CDs sound appealing enough.
-Vladas Jakubenas: Chamber and Instrumental Music. Here is Toccata's article on Jakubenas:
As composer, critic, teacher and musical activist, Vladas Jakubėnas (1904–76) was one of the major cultural figures in pre-World War Two Lithuania, before his post-War exile in the USA. As a student of Schreker in Berlin in 1928–32, he initially wrote in a Neoclassical style – as most of the works on this CD attest – and was nicknamed ‘the Lithuanian Hindemith’. Back home, he began to compose in a late-Romantic, gently modernist idiom, tinged with the influence of Lithuanian folk-music.


-Buxton Orr: Chamber Music for Strings. Here is Toccata's article on Orr:
The music of Buxton Orr, born in Glasgow in 1924, was hardly over-exposed during his lifetime but has encountered even more neglect since his death in 1997. This CD takes a step in the right direction, presenting Orr’s mildly modernist, elegant and honest music in first recordings of four of his chamber works for strings.


There is another upcoming release of Rameau Keyboard Music Volume 2, but I doubt anyone here will be that interested in it Wink.
