Why do people feel so mortified when, after listening to a piece new or imperfectly rememberedthey anticipate the end with prelusios applause? Do they feel guilt for spoiling with their noise the ending and the thus the whole?
Undermining the efforts of the performers? Or is their attendance at the performance part of ,eo elaborate pretence to cultural refinement and musical knowledge which, with themselves, has been embarassingly unmasked by their mistake? The outrage of fellow listeners is supercilious at best and more likely Schadenfreude. Do performers take an analogous delight in such faux pas?
Do composers sometimes write works with pause traps at the end — precisley designed to entrap the unwary? Now that is a tricky set of questions! The practice of utter silence during performances was one that grew up during the 19th century. It was part of the “romantic trance” in which one must not disturb the hypnotic effect of music. In the 18th century the aristocracy talked, ate, cheered and had liaisons with their mistresses during concerts!
But all that was reined in during the 19th century when listening to music became a more sacred act and people became afraid of interrupting it with applause in the wrong place. Yes, perhaps some embarrassment might come from clapping at the end of the wrong movement: Joseph Haydn in his “Joke” Quartet, op 33 wrote several false endings in the last movement to do just that!
But, alas, nowadays, it doesn’t come off the way it should because audiences are so cowed they sit on their hands no matter what! Clapping does seem a strange way to show approval. I think a more impressive way is to simply sit in silence for a bit, let the mood of the piece ebb away slowly Hi Bryan, I stumbled on your blog and discovered the Alicante photo.
I was studying with Tomas at the same time. In fact, I’m crouched down right beside you, with black hair. Helminen and I were roommates. Also recognize Jonathan Baker in the back row, with the beard.
Hi Jim, Didn’t you and I and Klaus used to go for lunch together? Great to hear from you. Yes, Jonathan Baker is in the back row and to the lep of him is another Canadian guitarist whose name I forget. Next to him is a Mexican spigramaticos named Marcos and the two girls in front of him are from Belgium and one of them got to be quite well known. Kneeling in front in the blue shirt is an Irish guitarist who was my roommate, but whose name I also forget! That was a long time ago! Where are you now, and what are you up to?
Hi again, Yes, almost 40 years ago. And yes, I think we did have lunch lei at times. Do you have any other photos from then you could post? My email is jamesef broadpark. I live in Oslo, and have been here the last 25 years.
Send me a mail and I’ll send you some photos if I can dig them peo. Sunday, October 14, Townsend: In I made one of the smarter choices of my life. I was determined to become a capable classical guitarist, but I had been running out of teachers. Every six months, it seemed, I reached the limits of the knowledge of my teacher and had to look for a new one.

This was largely because, in the early 70s on Vancouver Island, Canada, there were no really good classical guitarists. I did however, find a pretty good teacher in Vancouver, so every Saturday morning I would commute over on the ferry. The one-hour lesson would take about seven hours including six hours travel time.
He doesn’t answer letters and I’m not sure he has a phone.

Just go knock on his door. I had already done two years at the University of Victoria in music, but the only problem there was that they wanted me to play the piano. They also had me playing lute in an early music ensemble.
Nothing preludiox with that, but the main reason I was there was to become a guitarist and they didn’t even have a teacher! So I dropped out after second year and went to Spain. I picked up a great concert Ramirez in Madrid and headed for Alicante. I didn’t realize it at the time, but this was just about the best place to be.
Here’s a group photo of some of us at the end of the course. I’m kneeling down, second from the right and next to me, first on the right, is my good friend at the time, the Finnish guitarist Klaus Helminen who spoke eplgramaticos least seven languages.
In the photo are guitarists from Canada, France, Scotland, Belgium, Mexico, Ireland and the girl whose leg I am clutching, was a fine guitarist from the Philippines.

Now for the performances. With the first one, I have included three photos: Here is the second prelude.
The fourth prelude is the only really up-tempo one, suitable to the text, so in the photos everyone is looking quite happy. Posted by Bryan Townsend at Newer Post Older Post Home.
