Orchestra and audience alike were back in a comfort zone for the Brahms Symphony No. 2 after intermission, at least until the sound of a sobbing woman cut through the orchestra in the second movement. Welser-Möst kept conducting but looked out into the audience, no doubt wondering what could possibly be next.

It’s really best to cry pianississimo!

And believe it or not, this sobbing took place at the same May 24 concert I blogged about before, where the concert had to stop and start again.
