LETTERS: Applause pause

From Dr A. A. G. Lewis

Sir: I have heard the audience applaud the third movement of Tchaikovsky's Pathetique Symphony (letter, 30 July), in concert hall or on radio, since the first one I heard at a Prom in 1931.

This used to make Sir Henry Wood very cross: he stamped and waved his arms about. But it does end very like a finale to the symphony!

Yours sincerely,

A. A. G. Lewis
