Making recordings of classical music is usually a very expensive process and a return on the investment is not guaranteed.
Behaviours of recording companies in recent years has, largely, to repackage old recordings and put them on the market.
I recently saw an interview with the director of The Tallis Scholars, Peter Phillips, and he was saying that his record company, Gimell, had no funds to record further works following the completion of the Josquin masses (which was done earlier this year).
As a lover of much of the classical music universe I am anxious that the future of recording is bleak.
I understand that live performances are still viable but there is certainly a place for recorded music.
What are your thoughts - is there a future: what does it look like in 5 or 10 years?
