    What I found most interesting was parents rushing their children past when the kids intuitively knew that they were hearing something beautiful and rare.

    You feel there's a need to tell people to do that? I mean... this is a "message board." I think people get it. No need to tell them.

    Some of the best music I ever heard was played on subways.

    We have passed into the era where perception is considered reality.

    Somebody else posted this a while back but it's always a good thing to be reminded.
    Most people are in to big of a hurry, I know I am, to really stop and appreciate what's going on around them especially during the course of a regular work day. Besides how many (including us here) would expect or recognize a master artist playing in a subway without it being announced ahead of time as a charity event, etc, Hell, before I read the first posting I'd never heard of him, but then again I don't follow classical music. Regardless of the quality of the performance most are much to preoccupied to give anything but a passing brief thought to what is going on.
