Every Beethoven Symphony, Yours To Download - God Bless The Beeb!

Beethoven.jpgIn a landmark moment in the dissemination of high culture, BBC Radio 3 will be broadcasting every Beethoven symphony over the next month starting with 1 to 5 this week, then completing the set with 6,7,8 and 9 in three weeks time and, as soon as they are aired, they will be posting mp3s of them on their website so anyone the world over can download them. Its a wonderful gesture, but dont delay if you want to take advantage of it each symphony will only be up for a week from their time of airing. This means you have less than a week to snaffle up the first five, which were aired on Monday & Tuesday. (via Boing Boing)
