Why the need to explain yourself? You posted in order to stir up a reaction because you know Fisk attracts controversy. Why not just admit it?
1/ If somebody does not understand the matter, I need to explain it.
2/ I didn't post to stir up a reaction, because I could not imagine that it would stir up any reaction. I thought that everybody would agree with me that such a "Chaconne" performance was obviously disastrous, and that everybody would together analyze that performance to find what one could learn from it (eg. avoiding unreasonable speed-up, controlling dynamics and tone, etc.)
3/ I didn't know that my criticism would cause controversy.
4/ You ask me: "Why not just admit it?". I really don't understand what you mean. Have I committed any sin when I criticized such a performance? Must I admit that I was sinful when I dared to criticize a star? Must I try to avoid mentioning Fisk in any comment? Or must I always praise him so that I would not be sinful?
