About Music and Facial Expression

“Do you enjoy music? But why should I ask? Who does not like music?”
Marusia began to play the best part of the waltz and turned with a smile. She had to read on the doctor’s face: does her playing impress him?
But she could not read anything. The doctor’s face was still impassive and dry. He quickly drunk his tea.
I am in love with this sample said Marusia.
And thank you,” said the doctor. I do not want to.
He made a last sip, rose and took up his hat, without having expressed the slightest desire to listen to the end of the waltz. (...) Marusia embarrassed, and offended, shut the piano.
