Details about what you should find there:

Right now, Classical Music in Video includes 600 videos, totaling more than 300 hours of performance and teaching, and is growing to more than 1,500 performances and 1,000 hours of viewing. All forms of classical music are covered, including performances by leading orchestras, plus chamber music, oratorio, and solo performances, along with masterclasses and interviews with master teachers from around the world. Coverage of musical time periods spans Medieval to the 21st century, and performances cover historical recordings from the 1950s up to the most current offerings today.

You'll have to create a temporary account with them for it, but please do... and let me know what you think so we can decide if it's something we want to try to find funds for.
