I generally agree, but I'll happily listen to a synthesized/digital rendering of a work if it's realistically the only chance I'll likely have to hear it.

that's most likely the case here. It seems to be the format for most wanna-be's.

The link to the symphony at least offers more info. I try to start listening to the work and stopped in 5 secs. Can not get used to those synths.

Some time ago I was in contact with a young(er) Norwegian composer, Filip Sande, who also has a couple of synth files on his site. He doesn't like the sounds as well, he told me, but it is the only way his works can be heard.
There is no money, and probably also no time, to record the works properly. But sometimes .... and that's what we all are waiting for.

I find something about synth, moog, theramin and other electronic "instruments" to be a difficult listen at best.

I only just discovered this forum...

In addition to the synthesized* recordings, there are also some recordings of live performances of some of my chamber and vocal works, and also the 2nd movement (Meditation) from Symphony no. 1:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpvEM1pHV0w
- The YouTube video shows the score along with the audio recording.
- Program notes: https://leinmachine.blogspot.com/p/program-notes-i.html#LEIN-Symphony_No.1

* (Note that the actual sounds in all the synthesized recordings are not computer-generated - the "library" of notes played back via the notation software were all recorded by members of, I believe, the London Symphony using their regular acoustic instruments.)

Live chamber music:

The vocal music playlist on YouTube includes both live and synthesized recordings, but the live ones are clearly marked:
