free music...

For anyone out there who enjoys classical music and has an eMusic account - they currently have a free sample of music by Einojuhani Rautavaara, a contemporary Finnish composer. The sampler is 17 tracks, and includes excerpts from his Cantus Arcticus, Clarinet Concerto, Gift of Dreams, Symphony No. 8, Cello Concerto, Perlimannit - Fiddlers, Manhattan Trilogy, Symphony No. 3, Dances With Winds, Shakespeare Sonnets, Sonata for Piano No. 2, String Quintet "Unknown Heavens", and Vigilia - Vespers. Tracks are performed by the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Finnish Radio Chamber Choir.

I've only personally heard his Cantus Arcticus, but based on that piece, I would highly recommend this.
