I have A LOT of his recordings, too. What always surprised me was how he's not a part of the mainstream repertoire and how he's not really performed too often outside of Czechia. A shame as I think anyone who hasn't experienced his music would come away a fan. The first work I heard was his 1st symphony (Thomson on Chandos) and I was hooked from beginning. He wrote prolifically in all genres, but it seems the orchestral, choral, chamber works and operas get the most attention.
The first works I got of his were some string quartets in a Naxos download give away. That was enough to hook me.
