The Firebird - Finale Igor Stravinsky
8 April 2014, 14:56
The Los Angeles Philharmonic didn't let a 5.1 magnitude earthquake stop them playing during a concert last week.
The orchestra has shared audio of their March 28th concert, specifically the moment when an earthquake shook the Walt Disney Concert Hall during a performance of Ravel's Daphnis et Chloé.
It's possible to hear the audience reaction as the vibrations shook the concert hall for around a minute. However, conductor Charles Dutoit was a consummate professional and kept the orchestra going.
According to reports from the concert, several audience members ran for the exits as the rumbling began.
