Earplay audio

The Earplay audio archive contains recordings of almost all Earplay performances from the 2000-2001 season through the current season and a few selected earlier performances, plus Earplay recordings from seven commercially issued audio CDs.

These recordings are for archival purposes only, and access to the recordings is password protected. The recordings are losslessly compressed CD-quality audio (stereo 16-bit audio at 44.1 KHz sampling rate) in MPEG-4 audio format (.m4a), so tracks are large and may be slow to download. Most works are archived as a single track, but some multi-movement works are archived as multiple tracks.
