The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, one of the finest in the world, is offering free downloads of 10 great symphonies to celebrate its 120th anniversary.
Registration is required, but I just plugged in a bunch of phony info & that worked fine.
The kicker is that the symphonies will only remain online until the 24th of November (this coming Monday) - so you gotta act quick!
The recordings feature world-class conductors such as Bernard Haitink, Riccardo Chailly and Mariss Janson - so these are top notch performances.
The symphonies available for download are:
Franz Schubert - Symphony no. 8 ‘Unfinished’
Ludwig van Beethoven - Symphony no. 2
Felix Mendelssohn - Symphony no. 4 ‘Italian’
César Franck - Symphony in D minor
Gustav Mahler - Symphony no. 1
Antonin Dvorák - Symphony no. 8
Camille Saint-Saëns - Symphony no. 3 ‘Organ’
Jean Sibelius - Symphony no. 2
Anton Bruckner - Symphony no. 8
Johannes Brahms - Symphony no. 2
