I want to know what's the difference between playing a violin concerto (or a symphony or whatever piece) to be recorded into a CD (no audience, in a orchestra studio) and playing it in a regular concert with audience.
I'm talking about all the recorded classical music we can purchase in a CD store: DECCA, SONY, Warner Bros...
Is it like a regular concert, but with microphones for each section/soloist?
Is it recorded in one take, just like the orchestra would play in a regular concert one night, or do they record some sections and then they repeat several takes until it's perfect?
Do they edit errors and mistakes and cover them using software, or we normally listen to a natural and pure recording of the piece, as natural and pure as in a concert?
I want to know the process of recording for example a symphony or a violin concerto, if they use "unethical" tricks to present a "perfect" performance that actually never happened.
