Classical violinist Hilary Hahn's new album (her second for Decca Classics) is, to my dismay and annoyance, only available on vinyl and as a digital download. Unless Decca's mind can be changed (or Hahn's?), it will not be issued on CD. Judging by the response on Facebook, Hahn's fans (including me: I've been listening to her since her debut album in 1997) are not amused by this decision. Does Decca think I'm going to run out and buy a turntable just so I can listen to her new album? They'd better think again. I was quite happy when CDs replaced the LP (as we called them back in the day) and have no intention of going back. And I'm not interested in downloads, either (tinny sound, etc.). I assume that Decca is in business to make money. Why would they ignore what is still the mainstream format, the CD? Why ignore that particular revenue stream? I have all of Hahn's classical albums. But I guess I won't have this one.
