This is from Denmark Radio 2. Like the BBC did for Beethoven Symphonies last year. This series includes nine of Mozart's symphonies,
27. januar: Symfoni nr. 41 - (RSO) "Jupiter" 40:10
30. januar: Symfoni nr. 34 - (RSO) 23:10
1. februar: Symfoni nr. 40 - (RSO) 29:00
3. februar: Symfoni nr. 23 - (RSO) 11:25
6. februar: Symfoni nr. 15 - (RUO) 13:07
7. februar: Symfoni nr. 36 - (RSO) "Linz" 37:05
8. februar: Symfoni nr. 39 - (RSO) 30:47
9. februar: Symfoni nr. 17 - (RUO) 13:56
10. februar: Symfoni nr. 35 -(RUO) "Hafner" 20:29
They are all available now and I am not sure until when. There is an introduction to each piece, but it is in Danish. There are two versions you can download. Right click on the link and "save as". The first is a standard MP3 (God Kvalitat 192 kb/sec) and the second is a HiFi MP3 (Ekstragod Kvalitat- 256 kb/sec) which if I can guess what they are saying can be heard in surround if you have the proper plug-in. They have a link for that- .http://www.dr.dk/P2/Mozart250/Hvordan/20060126145321.htm I was able to put all of them on one CD if I left them in MP3 format at the high resolution version. I only have two speakers so I could not test out the surround version. My home audio system does play MP3s but it did not play it in surround since it lacked the plugin. Looks like that (surround MP3) works on #34 and #36 if I can guess at what they are saying ( I know a little German which helps a tiny bit). I didn't play those yet.
So happy 250th Wolfgang!

I D/L'ed all 9 in HD, thanks for the heads up.
I am going to cut the intros out since I cant understand it anyway...

uhm...wow. He did it again.
AC3 sounds a lot better on 6 channels, but for the file sizes, they are great. Hopefully, someone will release a codec to play the MP3S files in WMP, winamp, or Nero Showtime.
I reencoded a 2-channel VBR MP3 to 5.1 channel MP3 and it sounds...odd, but enjoyable. The bass has been moved almost entirely to the LFE (which is nice) and some of the vocals have been deepened. This will be something to watch.

Looks like they are starting to shut it down if you still want any of them. The first three they posted are no longer available.
