Beethoven... to download now

The BBC has decided to release MP3s of Beethoven concerts. They are gradually released, and only available for a little while.

And you will need to visit their page frequently...

But, but but... we are talking about live performances from the BBC Philarmonic Orchestra... they have a reputation to uphold, don't they?

I've sent a comment about my disapointment about the licensing, especially since the BBC has committed to support the Creative Archive program it has set itself.
Let us keep hope to see the BBC to come to its sense and distribute this content as Vorbis files through bittorrent (with, of course, other methods and formats for the less technically minded)
