Haitink’s new M9 will be the next digital release. The second movement is now on Spotify, and next week we’ll probably get the rest of the symphony.

Admittedly I’m least excited about this one. Haitink already has two damn-near perfect M9s (his original one on Philips and the BRSO one from about 10 years ago). The BRSO one was basically just a remake of his original, so at least with this new one he has something new to say: it’s 10 minutes slower.
Haitink is a master of this symphony, but a Rondo-Burleske that’s over 15 mins long? Really? We’ll see how that goes. Gielen’s studio account approaches 15 mins, but with him we get a heavy, grotesque, gnarly reading, almost like it’s heavy metal.

I don't mind it so much. His Berlin Philips cycle was cancelled before they got to his M9. I still sort of dream of it being recorded...just never released. Maybe it would've been a dud. Anyway...I look forward to this as soon as it hits Amazon's digital library.

Yeah, you're right. Regardless of any nitpicky "complaints" I have I'm sure it will still be a very good M9.
