    I did, under the assumption that the BSO is not evil.

    I try to limit the number of websites I give my credit card number to. I only have a few and PayPal. This way I have less chance of getting an email one day some data bank was hacked and I should contact my credit card company

    The BSO store has my credit card data for years now, and I never had any problem with them -- or with anyone else for that matter.
    Anyway, you can wait for this to be released on iTunes later on.

    I have yet to listen to it, but it's great that it is available in lossless.

    Is the lossless format they have it in (WMA 88khz) easily convertible to MP3 for ipod listening?

    I have Free Mp3 Wma Converter, it was no problem to convert it to FLAC, so it won't be a problem with mp3 too.

    After many repeated listenings I have to say that the first movement is somewhat difficult to get into at first, but it grows on you, while the second is great, energetic, very accessible, and lots of fun Smile This was 2,50€ well spent.
    (Now release the viola concerto already!)

    That's what I'll do.

    Anyone know when the iTunes release is?
