Known for being a gentle soul, Yehudi Menuhin also possessed a profound inner strength which helped him navigate a hectic life in the public eye. As a child he seemed to have a charmed life. As an adult he appeared to wake up and find that he did not really know how to play the violin. Critics were forever comparing him with his younger self, even though the mature Menuhin was five times the musician. When he was at his best, the music seemed to flow out of him and seduce all those around him. He cast a spell on all who met him.
