Description

This 2CD set features four violin concertos by Bach, Beethoven and Bartok performed bu Yehudi Menuhin, one of the greatest performers of the 20th century. These outstanding recordings were made between 1953 and 1960.

The excellent orchestras on display are Wiener Philharmoniker, Philharmonia Orchestra and the Bath Festival Orchestra. They are conducted by Wilhelm Furtwängler, Constantin Silvestri and Yehudi Menuhin himself.

He is widely considered one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century and his name is synonymous with the art of violin playing. "Listening to an artist like Yehudi makes even an atheist believe in God." (George Bernard Shaw)
