I've always been impressed by the Budapest Festival Orchestra's recordings, but they've only recorded a very limited repertoire (all Brahms, Dvorak and Bartok, as far as I can tell) and with one conductor....
Steve - thanks for that link to the detailed page on the Shepherd website - I couldn't even find it!

Correspondances hasn't been commercially recorded, but I have two broadcasts saved. I assume you know that his next work is also a song-cycle, for Renee Fleming, entitled "Le temps l'horloge" - there are several performances planned (I think the first is in September in Japan with Ozawa conducting). I too love Lutoslawski, but I must say I like the 3rd better than the 4th (but both are great works!). The 'cello concerto is my favorite work of his, though (recently overtaking the 3rd symphony). I was actually just looking at the Minnesota orchestra's website and was surprised at how much new music by living composers is programmed next season (Argento, Crumb, Skrowaczewski, Corigliano, Pärt, Harbison, Higdon, MacMillan...). Houston has a few more pieces than usual, but nothing too "adventurous" (Puts, McTee, Adams, Pärt, Rautavaara).
