這是老公與我分享的故事,真的挺有趣的,所以翻譯來與大家分享喔~

這是不是很不可思議?
 
在華盛頓DC的中央車站,在2007年一個寒冷的早上,一個帶著小提琴的男人彈著Six Bach Pieces約莫45分鐘左右。
在這段期間,大約有2000人左右穿越車站,大部份的人都趕著去上班。在四分鐘左右, 一個中年男子注意到車站裏有個音欒家在演奏。他緩慢了自已的腳步,並停下來欣賞幾秒鐘的時間,然後便隨即趕著赴他的約。再約莫四分鐘左右,小提琴家收到他的第一塊錢。一個女人將錢丟進帽子裏,甚至沒有停下自已的腳步欣賞他的音樂。大約六分鐘左右, 一個年輕的男人靠在牆上欣賞他的音樂,然後看了下手錶之後便又繼續自已的腳步。大約十分鐘左右,一個三歲的小男孩停下來欣賞,但他的母親卻一直匆匆忙忙地催趕著他。但小孩停下腳步又回頭望向小提琴家,只不過母親一直催促,而小孩只好繼續自已的腳步,只不過一直不時地回頭望向身後的小提琴家。這樣的動作讓幾位其它的小孩不斷地重覆,但每一位父母﹣沒有任何的例外﹣全都強迫他們的小孩快點繼續行走。
 
在這四十五分鐘的期間,音樂家不停地演奏。但只有六個人停下腳步,短暫地欣賞他的音樂。大約有二十個人給他錢但卻繼續以他們日常的步筏離開。這個男人總共收了32元。一個小時後,他停止了演奏,而沈默取代了一切。沒有人注意,也沒有人給予掌聲。根本也沒有人給予致意。沒有人知道這事,但這個小提琴家是Joshua Bell,全球最棒的音樂家之一。他演奏的是史上最複雜精緻的一首曲子,使用的是一架價值三千五百萬美元的小提琴。在這兩天以前,Joshua Bell在波斯頓一家戲院的演奏會,以票價平均一百元來聽他演奏同一首音樂,席位全部銷售一空。
 
這是一個真實的故事。Joshua Bell,在DC的中央車站演奏Incognito,是由華盛頓日報主辦而針對洞察力、品味以及人們的優先順序所做的社會實驗。這個實驗引發了幾項爭論:在一個平凡的環境底下,一個不恰當的時間裹,我們是否觀察得到美的事物?如果可以的話,我們是否會停下腳步來欣賞?我們是否可以在一個不預期的背景之下注意到天賦?
 
在這個實驗裹可能得到的一個結論是:如果我們沒有時間可以停下腳步聆聽全世界最棒的音樂家,使用最美麗的樂器演奏史上最複雜精緻的一首曲子的話,那麼當我們匆匆忙忙地渡過人生的時候究竟還錯過了多少的東西?
 
 
‎"In Washington DC , at a Metro Station, on a cold January morning in 2007, a man with a violin played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, approximately 2000 people went through the station, most of them on their way to work. After about four minutes, a middle-aged man noticed that there was a musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds, and then he hurried on to meet his schedule. About four minutes later, the violinist received his first dollar. A woman threw money in the hat and, without stopping, continued to walk. At six minutes, a young man leaned against the wall to listen to him, then looked at his watch and started to walk again. At ten minutes, a three-year old boy stopped, but his mother tugged him along hurriedly. The kid stopped to look at the violinist again, but the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk, turning his head the whole time. This action was repeated by several other children, but every parent - without exception - forced their children to move on quickly. 

At forty-five minutes: The musician played continuously. Only six people stopped and listened for a short while. About twenty gave money but continued to walk at their normal pace. The man collected a total of $32. After one hour: He finished playing and silence took over. No one noticed and no one applauded. There was no recognition at all. No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the greatest musicians in the world. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, with a violin worth $3.5 million dollars. Two days before, Joshua Bell sold-out a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100 each to sit and listen to him play the same music. 

This is a true story. Joshua Bell, playing incognito in the D.C. Metro Station, was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste and people’s priorities. This experiment raised several questions: In a common-place environment, at an inappropriate hour, do we perceive beauty? If so, do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize talent in an unexpected context? One possible conclusion reached from this experiment could be this: If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world, playing some of the finest music ever written, with one of the most beautiful instruments ever made… How many other things are we missing as we rush through life?"
