I guess Brahms brings out a little more passion than I realized. Two men in a high-priced seating area at the Chicago Symphony dropped the gloves during a performance of Brahms' 2nd symphony:

Wonder how a young man can hit an old man! Insane! So sad people don't know how to act anymore. I have gotten an usher when someone was in my seat and didn't believe he had made a mistake. I can't imagine hitting someone! Maybe the guy is on 15 medications like so many people are nowadays!
