If any one likes Beethoven, the BBC has been distributing some of his works being preformed by the BBC Philharmonic in MP3 format.
They're only making them available for download, for a few days after they're played on the Radio station.
I spotted the link a bit late and so only managed to download his 2nd, 4th and 5th Symphonies before they took them down.
How ever later this month they'll be playing the 6th - 9th and they'll be placed on the web for a day or two as well. So if you want a decent recording of the 6th - 9th Symphonies you should be able to download them from this page BBC BEETHOVEN DOWNLOADS at the dates mentioned below.
