However, to be serious, suppose I follow the presupposition, if there were younger ladies and gentlemen there, wouldn't they tend to gravitate toward one another and sit together, while the older guests gathered in their own little cliques in another section of the audience?
But yes, you are right - CB would be too polite to just get up and walk away - but I wasn't sure if he was sitting down in the first place, you know. I don't see it in the text that he was sitting down anywhere, and that it was a performance-type concert. Did I read it wrong?
I just revisited Ch 7 and did not see anything about seating arrangements. Not being a historian of the time period, I had the assumption that some people were standing up and some were sitting down when Marianne was playing (hence her comment about their "shameless want of taste" as they seemed to go about their business with her merely playing to nobody but an "old" man). But I might be wrong.
