Re: [ARSCLIST] CD versus Download was "All hail the analogue revolution..."
Off the topic, but I have a cello friend and client, who spent a few
evenings recording some Bach cello suites on her own (I set up the gear
and she pushed her own buttons over a number of late night solo
sessions - I get to edit and master it). When I asked her why another
set of the suites, she said she just needs to play them and sella few
copies at concerts.
I asked he what she thought of Yo Yo Ma's versions, which I listen to
now and then, and she said, well, I studied under him for five years
and I want to do it a bit differently... I was impressed that she did
not say "Better" and that she saw hundereds of his performances from
the front few rows...
I did not mention Casals, ecept when she got distressed over how nicely
her breathing got recorded. She relaxed then.
Anyway, as a performer she just has to do it. Whether a record company
would release it is another matter!

The big labels tend to make the mistake of issuing full price discs of
new artists performing standard works. In most cases there are already
twenty better recordings available. But I guess there are sales to
who have been to a live concert by that artist and want a souvenir.
