Heifetz & Eric Friedman - Bach Double Concerto

...of the Bach Double conerto's 2nd movement...



Yet another clip from the filmed Masterclasses at the University of Southern California, with Heifetz and his pupils.
Erick Friedman was Heifetz's prodigy, and was undoubtedly amongst his favourite students. Friedman's playing took after Heifetz's in many respects, most notably, his tone and phrasing. This contributed to his frustration; he never could escape the shadow of his teacher's legacy.
This clip contains a reading session of the Bach Double conerto's 2nd movement, with wonderfully expressive playing, and at times, one has difficulty telling one player from the other, so similarly did they play. Heifetz recorded the whole work with Friedman at RCA.
