編按：近日我出席音樂會，或者推薦維也納愛樂，都會以科普為目的，寫下文講下感受。班貝格交響樂團，我利申有偏見，聽開維也納愛樂嘅「熟成樂器」，我會一定會有各種意見。所以本來就唔想寫，但主辦機構竟然出一個咁嘅Social Media post，深夜先黎講呢單提油救火，呢度Back up 啦。 also English version below.
α. 其實呢單嘢真係幾個page講下，講下大家就會唔記得，搞到要搵指揮出 thank you letter，其實即係點呢？(即係要本席出呢篇水蛇春？)
γ. 所以我都清楚所謂18,19世紀論據，但而家咁多house rule，係唔係要好似當年咁，放寬到大家以前飲夜茶聽尹光咁，定係廟街不准拍攝果啲氛圍咁聽香港藝術節嘅節目？
δ. 星期六晚果場我係現場，望到指揮嘅位。開頭Dvorak 第九交響樂頭兩樂章，指揮唔介意，甚至第一樂章真係叫第一低音大提琴mon住所有人坐低先起手，佢自己都藉機抹下汗。第三四樂章之間，明顯佢無放低手，仲有人拍。下半場，Ligeti 「節拍機交響詩」同布拉姆斯第四之間，明顯佢keep住舉手，明顯signal係唔想人拍，呢個係我睇慣嘢見到嘅signal嘅「釋法」。指揮事後大方係一件事，但明顯拍掌有打亂計劃。
ε. 網友一大論點，係主辦方自己寫係票上，上半場遲到就無得入場，但現場卻顯示第一樂章完可入場。如果真係照顧贊助商，點解唔安排多首序曲，例如Dvorak 嘉年華、甚至咩中國嘅「春節序曲」，名正言順一首完可以放人入黎，點解突然咁樣失策法。
η. 幾年前嘅藝術節，我記得信報曾經有文，好proud 話指揮 Vladimir Jurowski 讚香港觀眾世界級，柴可夫斯基第六交響樂第三樂章無人拍掌，德國都唔係度度得，今日再黎柴六會點，我真的不敢想下去。
As Mr Leon Chu suggested, some parties may misinterpret the complains from the audience. Well, let me do this recap in English. Ich kann alles auf Deutsch aufschreiben, wenn es wirklich nötig ist.
I attended the performance of the Bamberger Symphoniker on Sat 18 Mar. Clapping was heard between each movements of both Dvorak Symphony No. 9 & Brahms Symphony No. 4. I can see the conductor from my seats. Personally I don’t have strong opinions on the clapping at these times, though I don’t do it as I think it is inappropriate, just a little bit annoyed. I only suggested any one of HK orchestras shall stage Haydn Symphony No. 90, as a joke to my friends, and by no means to make a fuss about it.
I do notice Mr Chu making his comment. I recalled once Russian Conductor Vladimir Jurowski, praising Hong Kong audience, refrain from clapping between 3 & 4 Movement of the Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6. The situation in the weekend just quite a new low from that.
We also noticed some members of the audience, also complain about the actual house rules were implemented poorly by the organiser. On the ticket they stated, “Latecomers admit after pref of the 1st sym”. However on Saturday. Latecomers were admitted between 1 & 2 movements of the Dvorak Symphony No. 9 resulting a very long odd pause between the movements.
However then I see the post from the organiser, the thank you letter from the maestro, claiming he don’t mind clapping. I think I really need to explain a bit what I think about the clapping. I remember between the 3rd & 4th movements of Dvorak Symphony No. 9, and well before the Brahms Symphony No. 4, Maestro Hrusa did maintain his position, showing the orchestra to continue, and the sudden claps did stop him to continue. Although in the thank you letter, the maestro don’t mind, but I don’t think such LONG pause or these clapping a happy experience at all.
