Purcell and a pint - welcome to a new kind of classical concert

"The 'rules' of concert-going today - sit still, keep quiet, concentrate, only applaud at the end of a piece - often make us feel uncomfortable, and produce a less than authentic experience. And, of course, the other way most of us tend to listen to music - on headphones, sealed into our private own world - would be similarly incomprehensible to composers, musicians and audiences of previous centuries."

I intended to create you that tiny remark to say thanks a lot once again on the precious information you've shared on this site. It was so open-handed of you to convey unhampered exactly what a number of us would have offered for sale as an e-book to help make some dough for themselves, especially since you could have done it if you desired. These advice likewise acted like the great way to be aware that other people have the same desire just as mine to grasp more and more in regard to this matter. I am certain there are several more pleasurable sessions up front for individuals that looked over your blog post.
