Couldn’t help myself. I won’t make too many off-topic posts, and I don’t know how long this link will last, but this is about what happened when Joshua Bell played his Stradivarius for 45 minutes in a Washington D.C. subway during rush hour. At the top of the article is a link to the audio – enjoy!

If the link stops working, you might be able to find the article again by searching on “joshua bell subway” – it is printed in the Washington Post.
A quote from the article by reporter Gene Weingarten:
