I know there are aren't that many around.

Bach, Strauss, Mozart,... certainly sell.

Alex Klein comes to mind.
He has a CD called 20th Century oboe concertos
that is awesome to say the least.

Holliger has some stuff and his contemporary compositions are great.

Unfortunately here in Europe there's a lot of contemporary music been played but i think there is a lack of CD recordings of concertos such as Elliot Carter, Lutolawski,...

Poulenc, Saint Saens, Zimmermann they are all good but the fact is that there have been quite a few oboe world premiers in the last years and i don't see any CD's being released and not just for oboe but for other instruments also.

Is the (classical) music business not interested in such music at at all??

I feel the American music community-market might be ahead of Europe in this regard.

Vaughan Williams, Corigliano, Carter wrote a Pastoral for EH and piano, Persichetti EH concerto...Strauss. There's a good bit of stuff. Just gotta look for it. (It doesn't help that I work in a music library so I get to see a lot of this stuff).
