A fascinating article – Pearls Before Breakfast – showed up in the Washington Post the other day, about a virtuoso performance by a famous classical musician offered unannounced one morning in a Washington DC subway entrance. Almost no one stopped or even seemed to notice.
I mean, sure it was rush hour on a workday … but this was AMAZING music, played by a internationally acclaimed master on a $3M Stradivari.
What do you make of this story? Are we really ‘too busy for beauty’?
