The New York Philharmonic, a longtime media pioneer, was the first major American orchestra to offer downloadable concerts, recorded live, in 2004. Following on this innovation, in 2009 the Orchestra announced the first-ever subscription download series: Alan Gilbert: The Inaugural Season, available exclusively on iTunes, produced and distributed by the New York Philharmonic, and comprising more than 80 works, including 7 commissions, performed during the 2009-10 season. Since 1917 the Philharmonic has made nearly 2,000 recordings, with more than 500 currently available. The Philharmonic began radio broadcasts in 1922, and is currently represented by The New York Philharmonic This Week - syndicated worldwide 52 weeks per year, and available on nyphil.org. On television, in the 1950s and '60s, the Philharmonic inspired a generation through Bernstein's Young People's Concerts on CBS. Its television presence has continued with annual appearances on Live From Lincoln Center on PBS, and in 2003 it made history as the first Orchestra ever to perform live on the Grammy awards, one of the most- watched television events worldwide.
