Does anybody out there have any uploadable performances of either (or better still both) of these works?  Alternatively (and preferably) are there any commercial recordings of these works that I haven't yet been able to track down?

Thanks in advance!

Me as well Dave.  I also have a downloaded performance of the third.  I only discovered in the past couple of days that Pohjola has since composed an additional two symphonies, one of which seems to be quite recent (2019).

Definitely a composer worth exploring. The Music Finland website (musicfinland.fi) lists 79 works, including five symphonies, and concertos for piano, violin and cello.  On the strength of the first three symphonies, I would like a chance to hear some more of his orchestral works, especially the concertos.

Let me know if you find them... I'd like to hear them.  Wonder if they are available from Radio Finland?  (YLE Ylen Lšntinen)  Radio Suomi?
