Heifetz at Home

I know that I should be spending more time practicing and less time watching films of fantastic fiddlers on youtube. You probably should too, but here's just one more. It is from a publicity film. In addition to a close-up shot of him practicing a bit of the Beethoven Violin Concerto and some Dounis left hand exercises, we get to see him change a tire, play ping pong, and plant a flower.

I have that video (from Kultur)'s fabulous. (My family watches it at least a couple of times a month :))

It also includes a Heifetz mini-concert at a college and Gregor Piatagorsky as well. Very staged but well done.
