Experimentul repetat şi la noi, concluziile în România Liberă:
Alexandru Tomescu, singurul muzician din Romania care canta pe o vioara
Stradivarius, a realizat la sfarsitul saptamanii trecute un experiment inedit.
Imbracat cu haine modeste, artistul a coborat in statia de metrou din Piata
Victoriei si timp de o jumatate de ora a interpretat cateva dintre cele mai
complexe piese clasice, create pentru vioara.
Efectul muzicii de calitate asupra bucurestenilor care se aflau la o ora cu
trafic de varf in statia de metrou a fost neasteptat. Zeci de oameni s-au
oprit din drum, cu riscul de a intarzia la serviciu, doar pentru a asculta
cateva acorduri din “recitalul” lui Tomescu si pentru a pune o bancnota in
cutia asezata in fata interpretului. Muzicianul a strans de la calatori peste
trei milioane de lei vechi, in cele treizeci de minute ale ineditului concert.

Washington DC, Metro Station on a cold January morning in 2007. He played six Bach
pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time approx 2 thousand people went through
the station, most of them on their way to work. After 3 mins a middle aged man noticed
there was a musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds and
then hurried to meet his schedule.
4 mins later the violinist received his first dollar: a woman threw the money in the
till and, without stopping, continued to walk.
6 minutes, a young man leaned against the wall to listen to him, then looked at his
watch and started to walk again.
10 mins: a 3 year old boy stopped but his mother tugged him along hurriedly,
as the kid stopped to look at the violinist. Finally the mother pushed hard and
the child continued to walk, turning his head all the time. This action was repeated
by several other children. Every parent, without exception, forced them to move on.
