Default Can a computer really replace an orchestra?

On May 5, 2019, the Wall Street Journal printed an article by Jacob Hale Russell and John Jurgensen describing an experiment they conducted. They asked two music professors to listen to 30-second passages of a Beethoven symphony created by a computer as well as passages by live orchestras. Both professors were unable to pick out the computer generated passage on their first try! The article goes on to describe the different types of technologies being developed to create music without musicians.
