I expected a more esoteric list from you, Johan ;)
Sigh. Duly obliged, five more esoterically polish compositions:
RVW, Sinfonia Antartica
Jón Leifs, Hafís
Einojuhani Rautavaara, Cantus Arcticus
Nigel Westlake, Antarctica: Suite for Guitar and Orchestra
Peter Maxwell Davies, Antarctic Symphony

… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.    RVW, 1948

You mean: A Minneapolish Garden (1986), for tape?  ???
