The fawning classes. A bit like the Concertgebouw, what?I've been to a Maurizio Pollini concert (piano & vocals ) in Southbank Centre last evening. He played Chopin and some fillers. I think it's inappropriate when the audience give stand up ovations to artists of such a calibre. They should rather get on their knees.
When I lived in Pavia I saw Maurice Andre; he got 4 encores!
allegro, ma non troppo?
