another musical tour de force
This documentary was made in 1981 so it's a bit dated. But it is loaded with beautiful things to see and hear. The young musicians Stern works with are, like those in Chops, hugely talented. They are also rigidly self-disciplined. How they get that way can be a bit disturbing. Stern is full of bonhomie and respect for his audiences and the musicians. A delightful film.
