Program notes

In 1987, Yehudi Menuhin – one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century – was invited by the highest Soviet authorities to come to the USSR to play, after 17 years of absence. Filmmaker Bruno Monsaingeon followed Yehudi Menuhin during three weeks of rehearsals, concerts and meetings with the audience. This experience resulted in a three-hour long documentary, Return to the Roots. Watch now the third and last part!
