A mattress company in Tel Aviv decided to fill up a concert hall with 144 beds complete with pillows and blankets, giving music lovers the most comfortable way possible to listen to a classical music concert.
But this could backfire. We were just at classical music concert not long ago where the audience was sitting in traditional straight-back seats, and this one guy was snoring so loudly they just about had to stop the show. And that was a really exciting concert with spectacular performances by world-class virtuosos.
What would happen if they played Mahler? This bed/classical concert idea could easily erupt into a snorefest, unless all those zzz's could be written into the music as some sort of audience-participation performance-art piece.
