The Online Beethoven Bubble?

from the who-knew? dept

It seems like there's suddenly a lot of attention being paid to Beethoven online. There was the BBC's decision to release free downloads of all of his symphony's (along with plenty of additional material about the composer) and now a story about the growing interest in the work of a few Beethoven fans who are re-creating Beethoven's "lost" music by finding fragments of pieces that have never been recorded and making recordings of them for anyone to listen to online. Of course, given the way some music labels responded to the BBC's efforts, you can almost bet they'll be complaining about this effort as well.
