Bookmark and Share

The boundary between classical performer and audience member suffered another blow this week when a woman took part in a video call on her mobile device during a performance by violinist Daniel Hope. Hope was performing a private concert in Brussels Tuesday night when the woman received and engaged the call during an encore of Bach music.

Hope wrote about the incident on his private Facebook account. The audience member held up her mobile device while laughing and loudly declared to the caller that Hope was "still playing" and that she could watch through the call.
