The Babe/Nickname thing has wornout its welcome to most here.
It's not a question of defending Women.
If some Female Pianist wants to show 90% of her Thighs, that's sad, right up there with the Kardashians, IMO.
The Younger Generations have a more than a little touch of the exibitionist in them.
It's what Celebrities do, why not them to?
The sexy-profile may sell CDs, but it doesn't merit constant comment.
And you brush-off criticism like an experienced Politician.
Stick to the Music, and favorite Artists, not Favorite Pouty Babes.
You're better than that.
For all of Chris's babe posts that get the forum all riled up *THIS,* your post, is actually a fine example of part of the real issue of sexism amongst classical music fans. Your post is the one that should get the forum riled up. But watch... just about everyone will agree with you.
More power to Chris!
Sorry dude but you just demeaned a whole generation of young talented artists. Do you even begin to get that though?
Man, that's veering towards old geezer type comments. ("In my day, we wouldn't have shown so much as an ankle!")
The reason the babe/nickname comments seem constant to you is because more and more new recordings are, in fact, by babe musicians. And the reason for that is that these musicians are often the best (or among the best) current exponents of the given repertoire. Thus, you (and others here) ought to be able to understand why my favorite artists are, quite often, my favorite pouty babes. If someone here doesn't like a particular babe musician recording, I'm certainly willing to listen to that. But when people go ballistic and get on the war path just because they see the b-word or a nickname or a first-name reference, that shouldn't be my problem (although frequently it is my problem, because I'm not going to let this kind of irrationality go unanswered).
EDIT: BTW, who set this current thread (which was supposed to be about Sudbin's recording of the Beethoven Concertos) off in this direction? I can assure you it was not me! ;-)
