Yehudi Menuhin plays Beethoven's Violin Concerto London Symphony Orchestra, Sir Colin Davis

About

Menuhin in a state of grace illuminates Beethoven and Bach.

As a child, at the age of eight, Yehudi begged his teacher Louis Persinger (first violin of the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra) to work on Beethoven's Violin Concerto in D Major, the same one he performed one evening in 1962 at the International Concert Hall, with the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Colin Davis. A concerto which played a very special part in his career. It is with this work that he held out a hand in 1947 to a defeated Germany, in the person of Furtwängler reinstated at the rostrum of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.
