Quote from: MahlerTitan on April 28, 2007, 07:38:54 PMit's generally difficult to perform in front of an live audience, so why not show some encouragement?
Quote from: quintett op.57 on April 30, 2007, 02:40:31 AMThe public in Paris is more severe. (which does not mean 'severe but fair') The last two standing-Os in the recent concerts I went to : Thielemann / WP and Rostropovich / Orchestre de Paris (Rostro's charisma was obviously the main reason, even if the performance was really great in my opinion)
Quote from: longears on April 30, 2007, 05:52:18 AMI stand when it's merited. My wife and I recently heard a splendid performance of Sibelius's fifth by the Pittsburgh under Andrew Davis. We and perhaps two dozen others scattered among the crowd stood and applauded enthusiastically. I think the mostly subscription audience was perplexed by the music, for they usually stand for even mediocre performances of warhorses. The same audience was on its feet in a heartbeat for the competent but not particularly special Schumann PC which preceded the Sibelius.
