Notes & Reviews:

Yehudi Menuhin was born in New York (1916) of Russian Jewish parents. He made his violin debut at the age of seven with the San Francisco Symphony in Lalo's "Symphonie Espagnole," following this with a recital in New York a year later. By the time he was eleven he made historic debuts in Paris and Carnegie Hall, at twelve in Berlin, and at thirteen in London, thus launching himself on a career that was to take him all over the world for the ensuing decades, playing with all the leading conductors and orchestras. In addition to his renown as a great musician he was equally recognized for his committed humanism, exemplified by his interest in and work for the young, and the many causes he found close to his synoptic mind and generous spirit.
