Further to my comment re Raymond Warren, I don't know whether members are familiar with this site but there are lots of interesting works which are not on this site or on Youtube. So far (and I haven't got very far!) for instance , to my own liking I have found the works listed below which gives you an idea of what's available, and I'm sure there are many other works which members will find preferable to these. Look for the entries which are hand written cd inserts as these can be streamed. Click on the typed black title below each entry to open a new page of the full contents of the discs, as many of them have additional works on them which are not apparent from the front listings(all fully labelled) . The commercial cd entries are, not surprisingly, only available as 30 second clips.
 
Raymond Warren - Symphony 2, Violin Concerto, Quartet No.2
Seoirse Bodley - Symphony No.3
Wilfred Josephs - Symphony No. 2
Antonio Bibalo- Symphony No. 2
Alan Bush- Suite of Six (quartet) Suite for Two Pianos and a better (audio) recording of Symphony No. 3 which is a UK performance.
Maurice Karkoff -Symphony No.6
Ingvar Wieslander -Symphony No 2 and another, forgotten which !!
If you haven't seen the uploads, you'll spend hours trawling through them. The quality is variable, but generally good, for old radio broadcasts.

I see also Torbjorn Lundquist's Symphonies 5 and 8 can be streamed too. I'll leave it at that!

I should add that what you found on archive.org is a part of the huge collection of the legendary Miklos Pogonyi (more or less the stuff he had digitized there was even more on tape). Miklos's collection was truly vast. In his last years, I exchanged a good deal of music with him, which was always fun. At that point, he was already very ill, and in March 2017, he passed away aged 71. In his last years, he was pretty much worried about what to do with his collection. Finally, donating it to archive.org has obviously been a very good idea.

I've been looking for the Napravnik quartets recorded on Czech radio for years now. Glad to see one of them. Any luck with the other two (1, 2)?

Also, do you have a direct link for Miklos Pogony's collection? I can't find any direct link.

The link is as follows:
https://archive.org/details/pogonyi-cds

Maybe one addition as for what can be found in this collection. Most of the stuff is either from broadcasts or from live performances since Miklos mostly focused on non-commercial recording in his late years. There are some LP transfers here and there but not on a larger scale.

Why is the collection titled "Miklos Pogonyi CD Collection of 20th c. Contemporary LATIN AMERICAN classical music, and it's description refer to it as consisting of "music by LATIN AMERICAN & HISPANIC composers and performers"?

Yeah, there's some of that, - but it's a miniscule part of the entirety.

No doubt the title does not fit. I guess the persons in charge either did not know much about classical music or did not have a closer look at the collection or both options hold true.
