    Just read this article on 4BarsRest.

    I must say that I agree with Alan Morrison; Pedalling can provide a beautiful musical effect, when it's done properly. On the other hand, it can be awful when done poorly or constantly without cause.

    I like to pedal as much as anyone else, but tastefully. There will be passages or notes that would sound grotesque if pedalled. Also, if requested by the MD, I will not pedal or pedal as required as ulitmatley it is their decision - not the players.

    Thoughts/Opinions?
