Do you mean that the audience know that they're getting piano music and prefer it. Conversely, for the other video, they believe that they are getting 'trad' Jazz music and they hate it?

On both counts, I am bound to confess to having less than no idea...

It is definitely something worth thinking about.  There must be studies somewhere that would deal with this matter.

I find having the score in front of me can be useful when listening, so I would choose that by default, if offered two versions.

Me too. Though I tend to prefer if the score 'scrolls' with the music rather than having only a single page presented, and if a video with score doesn't advance to the next portion of the score in time with the audio I may turn the video off.

(Youtube's sound quality is rarely good enough for me to prefer watching videos there—unless the recording is unavailable at higher bitrates I probably won't bother listening, same with mono recordings if I can find stereo remasterings)

Actually in this case it is not the chocolates that are putting people off, it's the flags. In the world of today they are a symbol of evil, injustice and cruelty.



"Chocolates"?  What exactly do you mean Gerard? Could you explain?

That question's already been asked by Ian Moore himself but answer has come there none; I have to confess that, carefully as I have looked, I remain unable to see any chocolates or indeed other confections in the photograph concerned, so I can only assume that gerard has far better eyesight than you or Ian or myself.

I imagine that comrade Gerard is using the word "chocolate" in its old jazz slang meaning of "good-looking male of darker-than-white skin colour". A purely historical reference, you understand: at least, I do.

I had feared as much, as you may imagine. I still have no idea what the ensemble is doing there in the first place in the context of the piece and, since I neither fly flags nor care much for chocolate (other than on very rare occasions), I guess that I should move on, really.

Gerard, you need to address this. It is clear that people on here are very worried by what you meant, and if this is not addressed or clarified, we would feel tainted by association.

Since he's not done so in almost four days, I wouldn't hold your breath...

I think you are right sadly.  Will report to moderator.  We can't afford for this wonderful forum, and its members, to risk possible association with offensive, as opposed to controversial, views. He's had an opportunity to clarify and hasn't done so.
