Museum launches CC-licensed classical music podcast/archive

Charlotte sez,
Today, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston launches the first Creative Commons-licensed online program from an art museum. The classical music podcast The Concert is licensed under Creative Commons' "Share Music" license, and features unreleased recordings of master musicians and emerging young artists playing masterpieces of the classical repertoire by Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, and others to come.

The podcast has also given birth to a related project undertaken by the museum to build an extensive online classical music library, with all tracks licensed under a "Share Music" license. The digital library provides a new resource online for classical music lovers, students, teachers, scholars, and anyone worldwide interested in hearing and learning more about classical music. The library includes artist and composer bios, with links for more information elsewhere on the web.
