One of our eagle-eyed (or eagle-earred?) customers noticed an issue with the Big Beethoven Box. I believe a few other customers might have reported it along the way, but some serious detective work finally solved the problem. And with the solution, many of you might have received an email with a link for a new version. If you purchased the title or received it as one of our weekly free downloads, you're entitled to this new updated version for free. 

While there's technically nothing NEW included, what changed was the reworking of the track listing and the correction of some mis-marked files. Tracks 162-166 were doubled up and what that created was a hiding of one sonata and our own listing on the site indicated that the tracks were all one sonata. But what happened is that two sonatas were both marked with Tracks 162-165 and we've fixed it. 

The final 18 tracks are now:
