Description
From its possible origins in the bow and arrow through the legendary Stradivarius, one of the 20th century's greatest violinists and conductors weaves the history of the violin with his own career, sharing memories of such composers as Stravinsky, Bartók, Enesco, and Elgar. Along the way Yehudi Menuhin offers his thoughts on technique, creativity, and composition, and discusses a wide variety of unusual violins from around the world. In addition to dozens of color photographs and illustrations, this book also contains a CD featuring Menuhin playing the music of Bach, Mendelssohn, Schumann, and Brahms, as well as performing alongside Stéphane Grappelli and Ravi Shankar.
