I would be interested in view of my fellow forum members as to why some performers go out of fashion. At the moment I have a bee in my bonnet over the fact that it is next to impossible to get Karl Richter's Bach cantata recordings anywhere on CD; the series has fallen out of the DG catalogue (despite the fact that secondhands are selling at £300 on the internet!).
I have a similar problem with Sandor Vegh's recordings with Camerata Academica. His recordings are available but it is difficult to track reviews - on Gramophone anyway.
These performers were both prominent conductors at one stage (to me they still sound fresh which is obviously why I have an issue).
Why do they fall out of fashion - have our ears changed?
