ABC Classic FM's classic/amp site gathers together rare classical recordings of Australian works from the station's archives, offers background on their composition and recording, and lets you listen to the recordings themselves on-demand. There are currently around 40 works on offer, but regular updates are promised. For an example of how modern classical music can sound, check out Colin Bright's The Wild Boys. My only gripe? Listening to the music requires either RealPlayer or Windows Media — a Flash-based player would be nice (and more cross-platform).
