Description
Yehudi Menuhin made his debut in Paris at the age of eleven. At fifteen he recorded the definitive performance of the Elgar Violin Concerto, conducted by the composer. Menuhin is acclaimed as one of the great violinists of the century. He was the first artist to play with the Berlin Philharmonic after the overthrow of the Nazis, and the first major Western classical soloist to play jazz and Indian music. A dedicated teacher, the former child prodigy established his own school where he coached young musicians. In this profile of Menuhin, filmmaker Tony Palmer keeps pace with the busy violinist: conducting the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra; working with his own chamber orchestra in Greece; recording with his son Jeremy. Newsreel footage of nine-year old Menuhin and interviews with his family offer an intimate view of a virtuoso.
