Heifetz masterclass video

This footage of a Jascha Heifetz masterclass at the University of Southern California shows Robert Witte playing the second (well, almost) and third movements of the Tchaikovsky violin concerto. Brooks Smith plays the orchestral reduction. Note the pointer that Heifetz uses to beat time on the desk--might that be a modded drumstick?

Note: Heifetz was also an excellent pianist, as this video shows.
