Re: [ARSCLIST] Recording rates for musicians.

I think that, in many cases, the amount negotiated for is, under present and evolving market conditions, unrealistic.

Some releases are as good as anything available.

I'm not saying some of them aren't. I'm saying that this is a "business model" that doesn't really benefit classical music.

Those union contracts WERE negotiated with the major labels. Are you suggesting that musicians who have spent a lifetime competing for a chair in one the world's leading orchestras don't deserve the level of compensation the major labels have agreed to as appropriate for their level of accomplishment?
