I’ve been plowing other furrows for most of the year so far, some exciting shit I am looking forward to going back and dive at into though Was heartful to see that Alexei Lubimov was instrumental (no pun) in getting Silvestrov out of Ukraine a couple of weeks ago

Went to this last night, having got free tickets as part of a promotion: https://nac-cna.ca/en/event/29947
Shostakovich 9, the piece I was most interested in, was amazing live! The audience was surprisingly boisterous, no doubt excited to finally be out and seeing concerts again; maybe the Glass piece drew a younger crowd as well? A lot of clapping between movements, which the conductor and orchestra were fine with, and whooping at the ends of pieces. Korngold and Glass were, well, Korngold and Glass and got standing ovations (though not from grumpy me, esp after Shosty didn't get one.)

Clapping between movements seems more common these days. In the past it usually was concerts where the audience was less likely to frequently attend classical concerts (big names like Yo-Yo Ma, etc). Fortunately I don’t mind it. It’s nice if people feel moved.

No, and, honestly, the thematic connection between movements isn't so strong in many to most symphonies and sonatas to make it indefensible. More like Zep IV, side 1 than "Close to the Edge".

My experience is people get the hint if the movements flow into each other or the conductor still has his arms up, etc.

Yeah they did that stuff after the second movements of pieces.

That sounds fantastic. have to decide if I can stand to shell thirteen quid postage (maybe I could get it sent to my mother in law in the US and just put up with the dl for however long it takes for me to get back over there).
