I'm thinking I might go back and start trying to fix some of these links that are no longer any good, because I'm sure you've all been having trouble with a lot of them. I'd fix 'em a few posts at a time, starting with the most recent ones and working backwards. Then I'd put up a new post with the new links for you, so you'll know when I've fixed what. We'll see.

I found a link for something by Herbert Eimert, but it's at Filesonic, and as some of you may have discovered, you have to actually try to start the download over there for them to tell you that the file isn't available. Which the Eimert isn't any more. Sneaky bastards.

So anyway, you get two Eroica Symphonies, which isn't much of a substitute for Eimert, but whatever. The Eroica was premiered at the home of Prince Lobkowitz, who's on our list. The prince also became the dedicatee of the symphony after Beethoven changed his mind about dedicating it to Napoleon. Everybody's heard that story, right? Napoleon puts the crown on his own head, the Bee hears about it, gets mad and scratches his name off the title page, bla bla bla. Well, anyway... whatever.
