Helzberg Hall

This classic 1946 film has it all — a dramatic story, fantastic music and plenty of Hollywood glamour. Academy® Award-winner Joan Crawford portrays a selfish socialite who takes interest in a much younger violinist (John Garfield) on the rise. But perhaps the best part is the outstanding score, filled with classical favorites which were composed, conducted and arranged by Franz Waxman. Carmen Fantasie, composed for HUMORSQUE is today one of the performed and recorded works in the violin repertoire. Violinist Isaac Stern served as musical advisor and soloist for the soundtrack, with his hands appearing in performance close-ups as Garfield “plays.” Hang around after the movie for a fun and engaging chat with Music Director Michael Stern and guest violinist Augustin Hadelich.
