Small question: if he’s a rock star, what’s he doing on a boutique classical label?

  • the expression is stupid – but a “boutique label” if serious as Pentatone is preferable and more clever as a choice to many others…
    He could have signed with Naxos ūüôā !

  • It would seem that “rock star” was being used as an adjectival phrase, meaning more good-looking, young and up-and-coming than a new Mick Jagger! It’s sad that any attempt to broaden the appeal of classical music to the young is mocked – why shouldn’t he sign to a so-called “boutique” label?
