During Thursday night's performance at Boston Symphony Hall, where Maestro Bernard Haitink lead the BSO as conductor emeritus in Shostakovich's Violin Concerto No. 1 and Beethoven's Eroica, he showed the audience exactly his feelings towards those selfish few who cannot stifle a sneeze or a cough. Writes The Boston Herald on the performance:
"Just prior to the hushed cadenza at the end of the third movement, an unfortunate woman in the first row had a sneezing fit. At first Haitink just glared at her. When it continued he turned to her, ever the conductor, and shooed her from the room with both hands. She left."
He was all like, 'bring it on! how you gonna act?' sweeet! We commend the maestro for showing that lady what's what.
