Sound: Yo Yo Ma plays Beethoven's Cello Sonata #4 Opus 102 Part I

If we closely control the kind of aesthetic object to be evaluated, as Jakob Rosenberg does with his master-pupil pairs in On Quality in Art, then can we make objective value judgments? (Or, more nearly objective value judgments?)

Suppose we were to do this in music. Compare, for example, two versions of the same orchestral work such as Beethoven's Cello Sonata Opus #102. Let's try it. Here is Ma's version.
