Beethoven, Anyone?

Thanks to Chris Bertram at Crooked Timber, I learned that BBC Radio has put Artur Pizarro's rendition of the complete Beethoven piano sonata cycle online. (The Portuguese pianist played the whole cycle in just eight concerts, in 2003, at St John's, Smith Square, London, when these recordings were made.) The format is for Real Player only, which annoys some people, and indeed I was unable to make the sound files work on a recent visit. Assuming I can can actually get it to work, it's a good thing, and I wish more sites like it existed. Anyone want to do this for the complete Bach cantata cycle?
