Curious to know if there are any classical musicians on film. Meaning in a major character role of a feature film. Jascha Heifetz played himself in "They shall have music", Isaac Stern did a small role of "Ysaye" somewhere, Ivry Gitlis did a few small French Films, but I don't believe anything major, Richter played "Glinka", pianist Jose Iturbi played himself in several films, Joshua Bell appears for a few seconds in the "Red Violin" and he supposedly was body double for the actor... Is there anyone else???
I always found it disturbing to have actors faking to play the instruments , why not use real musicians that could possibly act?
