Between his birth in New York on 22 April 1916 and his death in Berlin on 12 March 1999, Yehudi Menuhin, the son of humble Russian immigrants, grew from a brilliant child prodigy violinist, who made his public concert début in San Francisco in 1924, aged just 7, into not just one of the 20th century s finest and most celebrated artists (as a conductor as well as a soloist), but also a peace campaigner, civil rights activist, spiritual guru and revered senior statesman of the musical world, who ended his days as the Right Honourable the Lord Menuhin of Stoke d Abernon, with a seat in the House of Lords, yet also found time to establish two music schools, a violin competition and an international scheme for taking music out of the concert hall and into the wider community.

The trouble with anthology recordings of this kind is that at root, just as with any other kind of music, a great classical performance depends less on a set of abstract qualities of excellence than on a creative response to a given set of circumstances. That said, this six-disc outing does better than most with the particularly difficult problem of offering a reasonable sample of Beethoven's music.

This video is culled from the well-known 1970s BBC-TV broadcast of Lord Yehudi Menuhin's lessons. He is often considered to be one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century.

This CD, recorded in the early 1960-ies is a real treasure. Beside Menuhin's superb performance, it has something really unique - Barshai's Viola playing! His rare recording truly makes this CD one of the best releases of Mozart's music, especially Symphonia Concertante.

These are the best reproductions I have ever heard of these famous recordings. All credit to Mark Obert-Thorn, who created them from pre-war US Victor sets. In the early days of audio tape and long playing records, it was rumoured that the original masters of the Elgar concerto in the EMI vaults had been destroyed after a transfer to audio tape had been deemed satisfactory. True, the audio tape transfers when issued on LP sounded good enough, but many music lovers regretted that future processing work on the original masters was no longer an option. Well, here in a new century and at the price of a cup of coffee and a sandwich are miracles of sound reproduction that banish all regrets. Of all the recordings Elgar made of his music, this is the one that has the least "historic" sound to modern ears. String playing in the old-fashioned "slide from note to note" way was apparently something Elgar allowed or encouraged when he recorded his orchestral works, but it is barely evident here, and even less so in the playing of the young Yehudi Menuhin. The recording of the Bruch Concerto, an all round success, was made in London's Small Queen's Hall in 1931 and was, I believe, Menuhin's first concerto recording.

Yehudi Menuhin, violin

Bach's famous Sonatas for Violin and Keyboard need no introduction other than to say that they are considered to be the pinnacle of sonata writing in the Baroque era. This two-disc set presents all six sonatas performed by the legendary Yehudi Menuhin and Louis Kentner, recorded in 1951.

Yehudi Menuhin is commonly considered one of the twentieth century's greatest violin virtuosi; he was in the first flush of his mature style in 1951, and his trademark noble tone never fails him. Kentner is always a supportive and tasteful partner, always following the ebbs and flows of the violinist's tempos, and rising and falling appropriately with the music. Slow movements are delicate and warm, and both musicians handle the faster sections with elegance and flair. Menuhin always said that Bach's music should be played "with a spirit of reverence," and he is certainly true to his word here.
