Brittish Library makes classical records accessible via the Internet

The British Library is making their classical music recordings available via the web, more than 1,000 titles, many of which are interpretations of well-known movements not generally available. This is all possible through the Archival Sound Recordings project.

While the initial sentiment of such a project should be met with cheers, the recordings, for copyright reasons, will only be available through licensed UK higher and further education institutions or in the British Library reading rooms. Although, it is possible to explore the full audio holdings in the Sound Archive catalogue, include concertos and sinfoniettas from masters such as Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and Brahms and Haydn.
