I've now put the audio of the premiere performance up at Dropbox:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/fl7s8skcq3q3ggw/NY%20Philharmonic%20670427%20-%2001-Lukas%20Foss%20-%20Phorion%20%28world%20premiere%29.mp3?dl=0

I cannot guarantee Dropbox will allow too many downloads, so if you want it, grab it.

Anyone who knows a better no-fee system, I'm all ears. I have a lot of offbeat and obscure audio I'd 
love to share, but don't want to pay to share it. Is there any easy way to do Youtubes with just 
audio, for instance is there software that will just put some generic image around an audio file and 
render it to a video? Youtube apparently requires some sort of video element for a file upload. I 
certainly don't have the time or inclination to get into video production to share audio, but if 
there's some automated way to select an audio file and a photo file and get a MPEG or MOV file 
that's Youtube compatible rendered out of it, I'll try it.
