Download Beethoven Symphonies from the BBC

BBC 3 radio is broadcasting performances of all the Beethoven symphonies. The performances so far have received pretty decent reviews, including "vicious precision", which makes me want to hear them. The performances of Symphonies 6 - 9 will be broadcast later this month and in early July. For some reason, the performances of the first five are no longer available for download (dammit), and there is a short window when each of 6-9 will be available for downloading in MP3 format:

Symphony 6 will be broadcast on Monday 27th June, and available to download from Tuesday 28th June to Monday 4th July.

Symphony 7 will be broadcast on Tuesday 28th June, and available to download from Wednesday 29th June to Tuesday 5th July.

Symphony 8 will be broadcast on Wednesday 29th June, and available to download from Thursday 30th June to Wednesday 6th July.

Symphony 9 will be broadcast on Thursday 30th June, and available to download from Friday 1st July to Thursday 7th July.

I can't think of any better excuse for getting an iPod or Creative Zen than to have something for listening to these downloads. 8-)

Let's hope the other members of the PLO don't see this!
