C.

A is incorrect because "The concert having been finished" can not modify "the maestro"

Ok, good qtn

Let us attack..

First of all whenever you have past perfect, we must see whethet we can have 2 sequences in the past

If yes, select those options for future POE or eliminate them


Earlier action--->------ ----------------- -----------> Later action------------------>Present ( I am writing this)
Concert Maesto relax
finished and audience went

Okie we used Past perfect only for earlier action--hence we need past perfect for the concert and audience related action

For later action, we used past tense ( and not perfect)--for masetro relax

Hence "Had relaxed" and " Concert having been finished" related options can be safely eliminated and all

All, but, C can be eliminated
