Swiss conductor Charles Dutoit was conducting Ravel’s ‘Daphnis et Chloé’ when an earthquake hit the area. This was reported by the Los Angeles Times: « Six minutes into the performance of Ravel’s complete « Daphnis and Chloé, » at 9:09 p.m., a 5.1-magnitude earthquake centered near La Habra struck Walt Disney Concert Hall, one of the largest temblors since the hall’s 2003 opening. The hall rocked and rolled for several seconds — like an airplane experiencing turbulence — and the place vibrated for more than a minute. Although the orchestra seemed a bit rattled at first and the audience gasped, the unflappable veteran Charles Dutoit kept on conducting, never breaking stride, and the performance continued pretty much unimpeded. (…) « I work a lot in Japan, so we have this all the time, » Dutoit said, while admitting that « it was hard to keep the concentration of the orchestra. »
