Yehudi Menuhin

One of the greatest violinists of the 20th century, Yehudi Menuhin (22 April 1916 – 12 March 1999) was an American-born artist who spent most of his performing career in the UK. A child prodigy who recorded Elgar’s Violin Concerto at the age of 16, Menuhin premiered numerous works written for him, and performed and recorded the major concerto and chamber repertoire. He took up conducting in the 1960s and also founded the world-famous Yehudi Menuhin School for gifted young violinists.
