MP3 download broken
on 13 January 2010
Wonderful music if only I had the first movement!
The MP3 download doesn't work at the moment - hopefully only temporary. The problem is that what is billed as the first movement of the cello concerto is actually an exact copy of the third movement. If you observe the preview samples it gives both movements 1 and 3 a duration of 9:16. Click on both links and you get the start of the third movement. The same happened when I downloaded; two third movements, one titled as the first movement.
When I wrote to Amazon about this, carefully explaining the nature of the problem they wrote back promptly saying they had renewed access to it and to download again. I had a feeling this wouldn't fix the problem, but obediently obeyed the instructions, so now I have four copies of the third movement and still no first movement.
It was evident that whoever did this had not even bothered to read my description of the problem; a file needed to be changed at their end.
On writing to them a second time with a "please read it this time" plea, they have refunded my money but it is not clear when they will fix it - in fact it might disappear from the website. Just a warning to anyone who tries to download it at the moment.
