Beethoven, Beethoven, Beethoven

From Norman Lebrecht (at La Scena)comes news of a Beethoven project that should be of interest to many:

"..the BBC will broadcast the complete works of Beethoven, from the juvenile piano trios to the climactic string quartet in F major, opus 135, with many fragments and oddities besides."

He notes that the "concerts will be aired on Radio 3 and ‘streamed’ for a week on the website ( Anyone from here to Hong Kong can slip a disk into the hard drive and download a set for keeps. Allow five minutes on broadband for symphonies one to eight, ten minutes for the momentous ninth. This, as never before, is Beethoven for free – a gift to the world, just as the longsuffering composer might have wished."

Read the rest here.
