Furthermore, concert-organisers want to keep you in your seat until the end, hence the practice of using a newly commissioned, modern or "challenging" work as a curtain-raiser or slipping it in between two "plums" before the interval.
I also think you answer your own question; the work which is most likely to sell the CD must come first to attract the buyer. I am more exercised by the inappropriateness of some CD cover designs, which is a whole, entertaining topic in itself; I'm sure we all have some lulus on our shelves.
