It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

Don't just rely on my summary. ;-)

Generally, like you, I don't have any problems with editing. OTOH, she loves live, unedited performances - we were just listening to a live performance from 1989 of the Mozart Clarinet Concerto and the Brahms Fourth Symphony with Vaclav Neumann and the VPO (not the CzPO). The clarinetist, Peter Schmidl (first clarinet in the VPO at that time), muffs a passage right near the beginning of the Mozart (probably from nerves, since the rest of the performance was fine). Madeline was absolutely thrilled to hear this, since, to her, it restored the human element to the music making! It's not so much that she wants to stamp out editing, but she would like more of a balance between edited and unedited performances. Read her editorial - she states it much better than I'm doing right now.
