For anyone who is curious about releasing a recording on a major label, here is the timeline for my violin disk on Naxos:
Four days of recording sessions: February 2009
Editing and mixing completed: July 2009

Release: April 2011

That’s right – more than two years from recording sessions to release. And we were given just one week to submit our feedback on the edits.

When I asked about the delay, I found out it was because they have 680 recordings in the pipeline. Amazing how well they are able to do what they do, with such a backlog.

As I frequently tell my students, music is a sublime art form, but a preposterous profession.
