Almost a soon as the doors had closed in the venues for both the North West and Yorkshire areas, various recordings of winning and other performances appeared on SoundCloud / Facebook etc. Apart from the legality of a) sneakily recording the contest performances and b) publishing them online , both of are subject for other topics... What advantages, disadvantages to people think that the subsequent areas may or may not get from listening to these recordings? In particular, if the judge or winning conductor at one area is also going to appear as a judge somewhere else? Subsequent areas now have the benefit of winning / placed recordings + judges interviews / published comments reviews etc to take on board prior to their own areas. What do people think?
