The last time i went there, a mobile went off just at the start of the Saint Saens/Horowitz/Dance Macabre.

The pianist (my teacher) went mental.

It is a lovely venue.

Yes, it is indeed a lovely venue but an impossibly expensive one in which to put an a concert.

The mobile experience that you mention reminds me to repeat the (probably apocryphal, though I'd like to think true) story of the late and great Shura Cherkassky who, quite near the end of his life, was performing a recital in that very venue in which the first half comprised Schumann's Études Symphoniques when someone's mobile went off during that work and Shura promptly leapt up from the piano stool and said "is that for me?"...

Best,
