MDT is also having a Naxos sale, and an order of 5 CDs actually comes out a couple bucks cheaper for me because Archiv collects California sales tax (of course I include all this uncollected sales tax when doing my California state tax return  ;) ).  MDT also has the stuff that can't be released in the US.

Sticking to recentish Naxoi:

The Sarasate series with Tianwa Yang
Schmidt Symphonies (particularly Symphony No. 2)
Balada: Caprichos
Michael Daugherty orchestral works (the latest is Route 66 and other works.)
Roussel Symphonies
Brian: Symphonies 11 & 15
Ginastera: Veriaciones Concertantes
Dvorak: Piano Quartets
Hindemith: Chamber works for clarinet
Benjamin Lees: String Quartets
Schoenberg: String Quartets 3 & 4

Is it still on? These are the things I ordered, after weeks of NML listening; they're the ones I decided I had to have on my iPod/with me when I was internet-free.

Well, that very conductor just led the BSO in that very symphony, Davey. A great experience!

His whole cycle on Naxos is worthwhile.

 
Have you considered any of the William Schuman symphony cycle on Naxos?

Oh wow cool beans!  Next time I grab some cheap naxos I'll grab one of those Schuman recordings, and probably another Lutoslawski and a Stamitz cello concertos.

Stamitz cello concertos.

GREAT CD! I haven't put it on for a while, maybe this afternoon - 75 and sunny in London - is the perfect moment. :)

Oh, you lads . . . you lured me to Arkivmusic . . . and I gave over my April music abstinence.

Mind you, the responsibility is all mine.

Hrm, I haven't heard the symphony, but I thought the Romeo and Juliet performance appended to it was pretty boring.

Making that piece "boring" is a Crime Against Music!  Seek out the guilty party/parties!

David/haydnfan, some recent Naxoses I got that I liked, even if they don't all fit exactly the category you outlined:

Schuman: Symphony #6
Dvorak: Piano Quartets (2nding an above rec!)
Sweelinck: Harpsichord Music (if you like Byrd, you'll like this)
Schoenberg: String Trio, Septet etc.
Vaughan Williams: Piano Concerto
Rochberg: Symphony #1
formerly VELIMIR (before that, Spitvalve)

Naxos sale at HB Direct   link didn't copy, but address should work
"at HBDirect.com! Earlier this month increases in wholesale costs drove the price of a single Naxos CD up to $9.99, but with this private sale activated you'll pay just $6.99. Click the RSVP logo above or on our website and input the code NAX411 to turn the sale prices on. Order as often as you wish, but remember that the RSVP code expires on May 1st, so don't miss your chance to relive the Naxos prices of the good old days.

I haven't heard these recording, James, but I'd be willing to bet my last dollar that they are amazing!
