This was indeed a superb performance of my favourite violin concerto, comfortably surpassing one Nigel Kennedy at the 2008 Proms and that was pretty darn good. I rather wish that the programme had had the two halves reversed so that the evening could have ended with this wonderful performance. As for the inter-movement applause, I fail to let it bother me any more. There's usually a lot of coughing and shuffling anyway so it's not as if it's dead quiet or anything.
