joncus.jpgAfter the Proms Intro talk, I borrowed musicologist Dr Berta Joncus to talk about an issue I've been having recently - namely, audience reactions.
We hear about scuffles and battles erupting from a single performance, but never actually see it happening today..! Can we trust the sources that say it happened?
She was clearly the right person to ask; listen to our chat below and find out what was happening at the time of Handel's Samson!

Listen!
