Re: Are you kidding me?
Right or wrong, for the solo list it usually has to do with things going out of print. Yes, the logic only makes sense if you look at it from the perspective of the student purchasing the solo as opposed to schools having SandE libraries, but it is what it is. There is also some of the same rationale as the band list - pieces that don't get played sometimes get dropped.
Less of a 'generational out of fad' thing like in the band music area, but there may be some of that.
