The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, which performed a couple of Carnegie Hall concerts this month, has an intriguing offer: free downloads of live performances from their website. There are ten works being offered–all repertoire favorites: Schubert’s “Unfinished,” Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2, Mendelssohn’s “Italian” Symphony, Franck’s Symphony in d, Mahler’s Symphony No. 1, Dvorák’s Symphony No. 8, Saint-Saëns‘ “Organ” Symphony, Sibelius’ Symphony No. 2, Bruckner’s Symphony No. 8, and Brahms’ Symphony No. 2.
The catch? You must register and agree to receive updates from them on their activities and concerts.
If this sounds attractive to you, you can check it out at their download page.
