Once upon a time, if an audience at a concert applauded enthusiastically enough for a piece, or even a movement of a piece, that piece or movement would be repeated, in it's entirety, immediately. (This was in that same magical time when clapping between movements was not only allowed, but expected.)
Well, there was a twist on that concept earlier this week when violinist Itzhak Perlman repeated a piece because the audience hadn't applauded enough. Read about it here.
