This should be stickied for sure. This website is the best ever. It has the actual sheet music AND recordings! Usually over 5 recordings of each excerpt.

Who knows?

I've known of it since forever, I'm surprised somebody hasn't mentioned it here before!

I stand corrected.

Listen to the Vienna/Boulez Mahler 3 clips with Ian Bousfield playing the solo - surely the definitive interpretation?

I would never want to take away anything from Ian Bousfield, definitively one of my favorite trombone players in every regard, but after listening to all of the Mahler excerpts I would find it difficult to pick anyone of them above the others. I thought that they were all wonderful!

  The recording is fantastic, but I would hesitate to ever say surely definitive about any single recording. Many trombone players look to the NY Phil/Bernstein/Alessi recording as "definitive". If you listen to the recordings on the website, they are all different. Several of the recordings on the site could be considered definitive recordings.

One must remember too that not all ensembles/audition committees want to hear the same thing. What one group might define as too loud, another might hear as something else.

  This is very true, however this isnt something you should be thinking about before an audition. You can't try and second guess what the committee or music director want to hear. All you can do is play it beautifully, and be able to adjust should the panel/music director want to hear it differently. Listening to recordings like Bousfield w/ Boulez and Alessi w/ Bernstein can give anyone the proper ammunition to support their interpretation.

Which was my point. This really is broader than just an audition situation; if one freelancing, it would also apply. Listen to as many interpretations as one can find, build an idea of how the excerpt should sound and be prepared to be flexible. How bad would it suck if a player was asked to, " Make it sound more Alessi like" and the player did not bother to listen to that particular recording because he felt that he had found the definitive recording elseware.

That Kirov Tchaikovsky 6 is something!  Image I think that's one of the loudest sections I've ever heard. They also have some other Phenomenal recordings. Off the top of my head, Scheherezade, The Shostakovich War Symphonies (4-9) are all great. And there are several earlier recording of a lot of great Russian operas.

Unfortunately, I bought the Tennstedt version with the London Phil, also to be found on the site. It's horrible, the first note sounds like he ripped his bell right open. I might buy the Boulez version.
