Notes & Reviews:

People still remember outstanding American violinist Yehudi Menuhin's concerts in Moscow, beginning in 1945. The tour of 1962 was particularly triumphant; Menuhin arrived not alone but with his younger sister Hephzibah, who proved to be a perfect pianist and a skilled accompanist performing sonatas by Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, and Bartók. It is worth noticing that the musicians of the State Symphony Orchestra under conductor Evgeny Svetlanov did their best to keep up with the soloist! The solo cadenza of the Concerto, performed by Menuhin brilliantly and with technical perfection, deserves particular admiration.
