For the 100th anniversary of the birth of Yehudi Menuhim, one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century, Firma Melodiya presents a set of historic recordings of his concerts in Moscow in 1945 and 1962. Yehudi Menuhim had a special place in store for him in the constellation of brilliant violinists of the previous century. He gave his first concert when he was seven years old, debuted with an orchestra at ten, and became famous across the world after his triumphant debut in Berlin at thirteen. Despite the hand illness he went through at the height of his performing career, Menuhin continued to perform as actively until the late 1980s. As the years go by, his art is getting warmer and more humane wrote Lev Raaben. A son of Russian emigrant parents, Yehudi Menuhin visited this country several times. His first tour in November 1945 was an important event. It was the first time when a musician from the allied state came to the USSR. His chamber concerts were accompanied by the pianist Lev Oborin and the concertmaster Abram Makarov. He alternated large scale pieces with miniatures. Although technically imperfect, the phonograms of Menuhins Moscow concerts of 1945 and 1962 are still priceless phonographic documents of the era. Some of these featured recordings have not been previously released.
