Beethoven Sues for Copyright Infringement

Catchy title, eh? Of course that isn’t true, for one, Beethoven is dead, and two, his music is being given out for free!

I thought I would bring you all a little (more) culture this evening with some music links from the BBC (h/t to Donald Sensing). BBC Radio is offering free MP3 downloads of some of Beethoven’s symphonies. Currently you can download: Symphony 1, Symphony 2, Symphony 3, Symphony 4, and Symphony 5 with four more to follow. All the symphonies are performed by the BBC Philharmonic and conducted by Gianandrea Noseda.

Please, enjoy.

UPDATE: Symphony 1-5 have been removed from their site. If you want the files, email me and I can send them to you.

    I love Beethoven and he’s one of my favorite composers. I wonder if you have seen ‘Immortal Beloved’.

    I thought it was a great film on Beethoven and there were some really moving scenes in the film.

    Of course, the main reason I liked the movie immensely was because of the music.

    The passion, the creativity and the raw power of his music is simply outstanding. Thanks for the links.
