Hulu FTW. In addition to all the documentaries I’ve been watching (about whales, recording studios, and abstract artists), they have a series of 25-minute segments of Jascha Heiftetz master classes. Awesome for his facial expressions, the students’ dress and hairdos (it was the 60s), the drumstick he taps to get the students’ attention, his piano accompanying skills, the chamber music he plays with the students in the latter half of the episodes, and listening to Heifetz play directly after a student. He’s just so effortlessly elegant.
