Blogger Alex of Wellsung enters the perennial clapping- / no-clapping-between-movements fray.
[D]espite the opinion of some that clapping between movements is a sort of trick the sand/head[-]bound classical elite uses to keep the potential prole Beethoven lovers in the dark, I feel I must reaffirm that inter-movement silence should be seen as progress in concert protocol, not some snobby t[r]ick to be eliminated.
Precisely. Just as we declared in this post of not quite two years ago.
And as Alex reminds us, referencing a billboard poster proclaiming the sinister truth: "Only communists clap between movements."
