This is brilliant. Really. Deutsche Grammophon, which had an enviable position at the top of the recording industry for classical and orchestral music, has set up a download site to get the music for your ipod or other player: click here.
They are recorded at a high bitrate, and they sound REALLY STUNNING. I "hear" where the instruments are in the orchestra as it plays on my ipod, and I get fabulous detail.
The downside? The downloads are massive (32mb zip file per cd is a good guess), so don't bother with a dialup connection. You need DSL or cable.
