For American orchestras in the 1950's through maybe the '80's contractual
recording guarantees led to sessions in which standard repertory was
sometimes put out on the music stands and recorded with no rehearsal at all
just to fill commitments. But my impression is that, at least here in the
US, recording is for a number of economic reasons a much more limited, even
endangered activity and orchestras, when they can record at all, are
generally recording material they've rehearsed, honed and refined through a
regular concert series or even a tour.

Do I have a distorted or flat-out incorrect view of the current state of
symphonic recording?
