Well, "plans" is a bit generous, but I do have at least the vague intent of recording the entire Symphony canon... eventually. With newer pieces this hasn't been an issue, since I've taken to recording an audio version concurrent with the text release (though in a couple of recent cases this has introduced errors that really need correcting; but that's a different issue), but the "back catalog" represents a major project that's far from completion.
There are two main problems. One is that recording these pieces involves a significant time investment, and so is not always a reasonable thing to be doing. Symphony No. 1 required a concerted effort over the course of more or less an entire summer, during which I didn't get a heck of a lot done as regards creating anything new. (As a corollary, recording is sometimes outright impossible, as when I am, for instance, ill with something that affects my voice, or not at home). The other is that the files take up a humongous amount of disk space - enough so that we've basically run out. This is being worked on, but in the short-to-medium term it's already necessitated taking down some of the older non-Symphony recordings to make room for e.g. the audio versions of this summer's Symphony installments.
>I am sure the licensing would be a real pain.
I'm reasonably certain it wouldn't even be possible, and at this point a serious investigation into the matter would only attract attention...
I'm glad you're enjoying it, though. That's always the best part. :)
