Re: 2018 Proms Theodor Currentzis - MusicAeterna and Khatia Buniatishvlii
No you are not just getting old, or at least no more than I am! This clapping and cheering between movements "to show their appreciation" just shows the perpetrators do not appreciate classical music. The gaps between movements are necessary to digest what has just been heard and to prepare for what is about to be heard and the trickle of applause is simply disruptive. But then I feel the same about applause after each aria in operas. I think listening to recordings of music in my home has helped to make me less tolerant.
