Yehudi Menuhin

Biography

One of the top violinists of the twentieth century, Yehudi Menuhin began his illustrious career with a series of stunning concerts in San Francisco, New York and Paris -- all when he was between the ages of seven and ten years old. Phenomenal technique, a rich depth of tone and a maturity far beyond his years led him to interpret the works of masters Beethoven, Bach and Mozart, attacking solos and concertos with a passion rarely rivaled. In the 1950s, Menuhin began to focus on conducting, developing a taste for Indian Classical music that led to a series of groundbreaking collaborations with sitar maestro Ravi Shankar. Though the vigor of his early recordings faded in his later work, the socially engaged Menuhin has left a large body of music and a legacy filled with countless musical and humanitarian awards.
