Mm, bits are tricky like this; they lack physicality (even though they are themselves based on /arrangements/ of physicality - electrons, magnetic fields) yet they often describe physical things (movement of air particles, patterns of photons, solid objects).

I think though that for a bunch of bits to 'be' a piano concerto, some kind of translation has to take place. So it's more a case of a bunch of bits being translatable to a concerto or a compact disk, rather than actually being the concerto or the compact disk itself...
