Mozart Symphony No. 36 (Linz)

The Cleveland Orchestra played this in November.

Before the concert, the conductor told us all a little bit about what concerts were like in Mozart’s day.  Men wore swords and women had lapdogs.  He also told us that no one wanted old music.  There was an Academy of Ancient Music in London; they defined ancient music as older than 20 years.

One thing he told us is that the audiences at the time clapped after each movements.  So, after each movement of the concerto and the symphony, we clapped.  The conductor was really tickled by that.
