    Great discussion on the union / recording issues and also about the state of orchestras in general right now. Unfortunately, the culture of life inside an orchestra disallows anyone from even pondering how to reinvent the model from scratch without severe reprimands from colleagues. (Or—I’m not kidding—references to broken kneecaps.) It will take the will of a young and animated generation with their passion for music to make any real change for the better. Good luck, and keep the discussion lively.

    Thanks for the comment Lamont. The world is changing fast and that’s not something orchestras are known for I’m afraid.
