To me it sounds like good, well-constructed music.  But that's not quite enough.

This aligns with my experience.

John Harbison, I suppose.  The Boston Symphony did a set (put out on their own label) of his symphonies a few years ago, and I don't think he's written another one since the Sixth.  Not too enthusiastic about his music, myself.

(Oops, I looked it up, and this release was digital only!  Guess it doesn't count, and I'm pretty sure some of those works have never appeared on any disc.)

To me it sounds like good, well-constructed music.  But that's not quite enough.  I've heard up through No. 4.

Another Scandinavian concerto this time the 1996 Piano Concerto from Per Norgard entitled "Concerto in due tempi", played admirably by Per Salo, who conquers some fiendish piano writing, with the Danish NRSO & Leif Segerstam.
I find Norgard a little more challenging to listen to but when you get into his sound world it is very rewarding - great modern music!

Continuing this evenings Scandinavian Concerto theme, two more violin concertos - Fartein Valen's Violin Concerto from 1940 and the much more recent Arne Nordheim Violin Concerto composed in 1997.
Both works are played by Arve Tellefsen with the Oslo PO conducted by Christian Eggen. Both fine pieces in my opinion.
