I have notice (correct me if I am wrong) the trend of making a second recording of a previously recorded works seems to be more popular then ever ( Joshua Bell's new Tchaikovsky with MTT and Berlin Phil., Anne-Sophie Mutter's new Mozart violin concerti, etc). From a fan's point-of-view, a second recording offers insight to the artist musical development, perhaps better sound quality, etc, but to the general public, do you think this instagnation of recording well-known works instead of new, contemporary music stifles the development of Classical music?
