About

Two legends pay tribute to Bach: a great moment.

"The fact of both having Jewish and Russian origins meant we shared the same musical language," says Yehudi Menuhin when talking about his relations with his friend and fellow musician David Oistrakh. "I didn't speak Russian, he didn't speak English, but we communicated in a sort of German dialect. A friendship that withstood the iron curtain was born in 1945 between the American from New York and the Russian from Odessa. That year, Menuhin was invited by the Soviet government and flew to Moscow. Upon his arrival, Oistrakh was there to greet him.
