“Yehudi Menuhin is the reason I became a violinist. I was privileged to know Menuhin all my life – as he used to say, I fell into his lap, as a baby of two years age. Menuhin often called himself my “musical grandfather”. Now, in celebration of what would have been his centenary, my friends and I can finally pay our respects to this great man, in a way I am sure he would have loved,” said Daniel Hope.
“My Tribute to Yehudi Menuhin” is a beautiful selection of works, mostly commissioned by or for Yehudi Menuhin. It is released internationally in February 2016.
