Isn't he wonderful. I posted those clips on Youtube. We celebrated Maestro's 93rd birthday this July. He is getting up there in age. I have more clips! Just need to post them...found them in his private collection of videos made by his wife Julia. I'm glad you appreciate what an extraordinary violinist he is.
