Modern day Classical Orchestra recommendation...

I'm fairly new to classical orchestra music, but I love it so far. I was wondering if anyone could recommend any "current" day classical orchestra CD's I should be on the lookout for. I enjoy all aspect of orchestra. My only things is it must be a good performance and an even better recording; something audiophile (or close to) grade.

Any suggestions?
There are far too many possibilities to just arbitrarily throw them out, IMHO, without any clue about what form or what composer you have already listened to and enjoy.

If you have no clue whatsoever, Reference Recording has put out 5 compilation discs which have many short popular pieces by different composers what have been positively received by audiences for many years (thats why they are popular - DUH!). And the audio is great, thats what Reference Records are known most for, but these are pretty good performances as well.

While you're on RR site look up Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances - Now thats a real demo disc as well as exciting, enjoyable, and assessible.

Also there have been numerous inquiries about classical music in the past. You might look up the threads I participated in several times for the benefit of persons new to classical seeking recommendations. You can note who some of the other participants who appeared in the threads and then look up their threads for other nuggets. Some guy called Texasdave(?) had a lot of good audio/performance recommendations as well as some others who regularily contribute to music inquiries.

Have fun. It sure has been for me (classical music that is).
I'm gonna be a homie and suggest some of the recent releases from the Minnesota Orchestra. I don't think you'll be dissappointed.
Cdwallace, if you have digital cable or Satelite Radio try checking out the Classical stations as they display info about what is playing, that way you could jot notes down and then it would be easy for folks to help.
to look up for good reviews on good cds.
Schnittke 8th Symphony on the BIS label.
Petterson Any Symphony on the BIS label.
Gorecki 3rd Symphony Naxos...Gorecki's 3rd was a big
seller in the UK..sold like over a million copies. Very interesting music

I think this want you meant by "modern" classical music???
