So you take a world class, hot shot violinist and stick 'em in a public spot, busker style, and shhh, don't tell anyone.
Sound like a good idea? I thought so a few weeks ago when the Washington Post did it with Joshua Bell. Apparently, the Independent agrees because the newspaper recruited Tasmin Little to set up her Stradivarius near Waterloo Station. Okay, perhaps ideas are made to be stolen, er, borrowed. But does anybody else find it strange that it takes 1,814 words before the writer even mentions the Post piece?
