Hot on the Heels of the Lockout

The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra has a new release, of music by Ralph Vaughan Williams, on their own label. It comes complete with a self-congratulatory press release. Here's what CEO Stanley Romanstein has to say:
“This has been an exciting time in the Orchestra’s history of performing great music and presenting great artists,” Atlanta Symphony Orchestra President and CEO Stanley E. Romanstein, Ph.D, has said.  “We are especially thrilled to have a distribution partnership with Naxos as we grow ASO Media. Together, we will ensure the Orchestra’s recordings are available to music lovers around the globe.” 
Yes, it's an exciting time when nobody will get to hear the ASO live because of the lockout.

The timing leaves just a bit to be desired and certainly leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
