I mentioned this on the air this morning, so I thought I'd post a link, too.
Pianist Andras Schiff has been playing all of the Beethoven sonatas in a series of eight recitals. A couple of years ago, when he played them at Wigmore Hall in London, he also gave a lecture-demonstration before each concert, and much to my delight London's Guardian newspaper put the audio files on their website.
Schiff is finishing up the same series of concerts at Carnegie Hall this season, but doesn't appear to be giving the lectures again.
