Hi Todd,
Think you will enjoy the brilliant playing of Stern (at the top of his game so to speak)...the sound of which is amazing given that the movie "Humoresque" was made in 1945...even though the story line (about the life of a concert violinist) is a bit of a melodrama and at times a bit hokey.

In the old John Garfield movie "Humoresque" there is a riveting moment when Isaac Stern's left hand is shown doing a spectacular sounding chromatic glissando...I often wondered how he did it....thanks for the very clear explanation you've given of how to work on it and how it's done.

Hi Tosh, I have seen photos of Stern performing in that, but not the movie itself. Now I want to find it! Thanks for the tip.
