The Frigid Fingers Were Live, But The Music Wasn’t


An article in The NY Times reveals that due to the frigid weather the  
performance of John Williams' piece "Air & Simple Gifts" composed for  
and heard at Obama's inauguration was a version recorded 2 days  
earlier that the musicians (Itzhak Perlman, Yo-Yo Ma, Gabriela Montero  
& Anthony McGill) played along with at the ceremony.  Perlman and Ma  
brought modern instruments on stage instead of one of the former's  
Stradivarius or Guarneri violins and the latter's Montagna or  
Stradivarius cellos.
