It's easy to figure out. The impresario of the Conzertgebow, a
certain Sal I. Aria said he thought the piece had too many notes and
the musicians would have to cut it down to about 50% of the original.

But seriously, I'd like to know if the cut was electronic because if
it was then quick and dirty video editing has gone far beyond the old
cut and paste stage of my youth. On some of my recordings with
computer, it's easy to pull off an audio edit. If I screw up on a
repeat, I'll simply cut the bad section and put in the section played
the first time around. One zooms into the sonogram after listening
to get the beat right for the likely edit point, then one picks an
amplitude level identically close to that which is being pasted and
voila, the result is absolutely undetectable. No clicks, no tempo
discontinuity. I figure one can do the same with a video, though
I've never seen an editor in action on the matter.

My guess is that there was no electronic edit, but that time
constraints and the musical message to be imparted in the concert
required an abridged version.

So, if it is convenient, Jason, find out for us.
