Once a group I was working with was using Radetzky Marsch in a performance piece 
made in Australia .. but we ended up performing this one in the Salzburg 
festival. The technicians at the rehearsals told us that the audience would clap 
along, which was a bit of a worry given what we were doing and the fact that we 
had never intended it to be perceived in this particular context. Sure enough, 
and true to local tradition, the clapping started with the first bar or two 
every night ... but stopped mid clap shortly after. A piece of music can have 
very different readings in different places. Fortunately the work was strong 
enough to cope with this.
