comment What is the reason for pitch inflation?
I was talking about tuning the entire orchestra to a higher frequency on purpose. But yeah, I've noticed the same tendency for amateur aerophone players to go sharp.

Really? I thought it was Europe that used 442 Hz and above, and only the U.S. used 440.

@guidot I could see why singers hated it, because of the strain on their voices, but I never really knew that there were many instrumentalists against it as well for reasons other than timbre issues on aerophones.

comment What is the reason for pitch inflation?
Yeah, I didn't mean individual musicians, but rather instrumental groups (as opposed to singers, many of whom have railed against such practices), but I guess I didn't make my thoughts clear. Regardless, thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
