I have been pestering EMI to issue that excellent Berglund performance of Nielsen's 5th on CD too. There was some talkof it hapening a while back but there have subsequently been big cuts in EMI's classical division which may have prevented the release.
Berglund's sibelian performance of Vaughan Williams's Symphony No 6 is another neglected gem, but fortunately it is now available on CD. Other candidates for CD release are Edward Downes's Bax Symphony No 3, Morton Gould's Vaughan Williams recordings and Miaskovsky's Symphony 21 (a wonderfully reflective performance) with Rimsky Korsakov's 'Antar Symphony' and also Tjeknavorian's first (RCA not ASV) recording of Khachaturian's Symphony No 1 with the LSO.
