Corey Cerovsek, Josef Gingold, and Yehudi Menuhin

This film clip begins with Cerovsek riding a bicycle in Bloomington, Indiana (again, shades of "Breaking Away"), makes a jaunt up to Canada for a rehearsal of the Bach Double with Yehudi Menuhin, and then brings us back to Bloomington for a bit of the Bach Double with Cerovsek and his teacher Josef Gingold. At the very end we see a photo of Menuhin as a young man sitting on a bicycle, and then we get an extraordinarily insightful statement from him (at the age of 76) about childhood in relation to music. The larger film ends with a performance of the Bach Double with Cerovsek and Menuhin.

This post is inspired from a conversation I'm having with my friend Martha who has the delightful opportunity to play a concert with Cerovsek in Bloomington tomorrow.
