Beethoven on the cheap

If you're cheap, and you've got musical taste (unlike some I could name) then here's an opportunity to download all Beethoven's nine marvelous symphonies in MP3, courtesy of the British taxpayer. [Hat tip, Patrix.]

Download Simple Plan's "Shut up" - that's good too...

The Romantic composers are my favourite, although I have never been a huge fan of Beethoven. I prefer Chopin, Brahms,Liszt, and Mendelssohn - and I can play them too - one of my many talents.

And bandwdith to spare they have. It's streaming in at 190kb/s and I suppose the other bandwidth I have is taken up by my Dutch Classical Radio stream.

Don't we love it when we get free stuff from other tax payers.

Hmm, after downloading I must say government money doesn't buy a lot of quality. It's just 128kbps, so entire frequency bands are missing. It can be used quite well to stimulate your memory of what the music sounds like, but otherwise...

I did warn you it was 'cheap.' :-)

Still, even at 128kbps Beethoven's nine symphonies are a better download than anything else most people are going to find. ;^)
