Woman has 'loud and full body orgasm' during orchestra's Tchaikovsky performance
Concertgoers and orchestra members were shocked when they heard a woman loudly moaning during the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra’s performance on Friday.
The incident happened at Friday night’s performance at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. The orchestra, conducted by Elim Chan, performed Thomas Adès’ violin concerto and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No 5 in E minor.
But during a quiet moment of the iconic Russian composer’s symphony, another sound took concertgoers by surprise.
‘A woman in the audience had loud and full body orgasm during the 5th’s second movement,’ composer Magnus Fiennes, who attended Friday night’s show, said in a post on Twitter. ‘Band politely carried on. Props to LAPhil (and Pytor Ilyich) for bringing it on.’
Several others on social media confirmed Fiennes’ account, with one person even producing an audio recording of the moment, later obtained by TMZ.
However, some audience members were disagreed with Fiennes’ characterization of the event. ‘This is not what happened. The poor woman had a breakdown of some sort,’ composer Rodrigo Ruiz said in response.
Fiennes disagreed, insisting that the woman was not having a medical emergency and stayed for the entirety of the performance.
‘One can’t know exactly what happened, but it seemed very clear from the sound that it was an expression of pure physical joy,’ music agent Lukas Burton told the Los Angeles Times.
According to the Philharmonic, Tchaikovsky’s fifth symphony intentionally evokes feelings of love and romance.
‘The second movement’s luscious main theme was adapted for a popular love song,’ the orchestra wrote in show’s online program. ‘Tchaikovsky’s skillful orchestration, however, lifts the mood from sentimentality to high Romanticism.’
Metro.co.uk has reached out to the Los Angeles Philharmonic, who have not yet made any public statements about the incident.
