The Don Satzes of the world have period instruments/HIP in their hearts,
souls, and bloodstream, and will continue loving to listen and buy those

My opinion is that only a *jerk* would stop listening to a liked version
simply because it does not approximate some premise of historical accuracy.
Does Bernard really think that we would behave like that? That historical
accuracy takes center stage over musical enjoyment? I don't know where that
idea would be coming from.
