Isaac Stern - My First 79 Years

Isaac Stern, the world renowned violinist, has released his memoirs My First 79 Years. In it, Stern recalls the many extraordinary musicians, audiences and others with whom he has made music. But perhaps his most reverent praise is reserved for his beloved ancient Guarnerius violin. Brooke talks with Mr. Stern about his "First 79 Years."
