I use Apple products (iMac, iPad, and iPhone), and have gotten notice of the Apple Classical Music streaming app, but have not yet signed up for it.  Hopefully, it will have famous performances we've known for years, as well as new ones that will appear in the future.
This is an f.y.i. that one of the items that the Vienna Phil. is making available at the new Apple Streaming app is a Mahler 9 conducted by F. Welser-Most. Enjoy.
D'oh! You're right, it IS Martin. I made it the rest of the way through the performance; and I liked it. I bet that was quite the concert experience.

Looks like with Apple's new Classical Music app, I also stumbled upon the same forces doing Mahler's First. I've only made midway through the first movement...but it's even better. Zweeden manages those contrasts nicely. So the spooky middle section was magical and creepy. Very evocative.
I think it's very likely that Amazon will show a disc being available at a later date. If Van Bahr makes a disc for Europe (I think it's showing at Presto!), it'll come to Amazon at some point.

Sadly, it appears that Vanska's M9th will be available only as files. I can't find any place in the States that has the SACD for sale.

The sound is great. I have high hopes for the remainder of this cycle, particularly M8 and M3.
That's Chris Martin on trumpet. I heard them do this concert in Ann Arbor in November of that year. Where I was sitting, I received the full force of their brass section. It was delightful.
I have the L.P.O. in-house issue of their M5 with J. van Zweden. It really flew under the radar, as I think it's pretty much excellent. Of course, the L.P.O. had plenty of practice playing M5 under Tennstedt, and who knows who else.
I happened to notice that the Jaap van Zweden/New York Philharmonic Mahler 5th is now available on iTunes. I can't swear to it, but Phil Smith is still on trumpet, but it was the first season back without Phil Myers as principal horn. I'm not too far into the performance, but the first movement sounds good. But the orchestra itself is competing against itself...even with only download versions considered: Maazel, Gilbert...and now this. But, hey! It's fine. Here's the New York Times review, if you can view it.
