This verb form is used here as an adjective and means final - moments that come towards the end.

Hi Alan,

"In the closing moments..." Could I understand that every time that the symphony starts someone's mobile phone rings, Is it true?

Thanks,

Matias, not really. The example quoted was in direct reference to " the closing moments " meaning; that as the symphony was just about to end, someone's mobile phone started to ring, obviously spoiling the ending of the symphony for the audience.
