A man in a subway station started to play the violin; it was a cold January morning. He played six Bach pieces for nearly an hour. During that time, since it was rush hour, it was calculated that tens of thousands of people went through the station, most of them on their way to work. In the 45 minutes he played, only six people stopped. Approximately 20 gave him money and continued walking. He collected $32. When he finished playing and silence took over, no one noticed it. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.
No one knew thiit at the time, but the musician in their midst was Joshua Bell, one of the best violinists in the world. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written with a violin that is valued at 3.5 million dollars.
