About the Menuhins
Yehudi Menuhin began playing the violin at the age of five, and before he was twelve he was performing with his sister Hephzibah on international concert tours.
His concert career flourished, and he has been honored by governments and societies throughout the world both for his artistry and his humanity. He has served as the artistic director of two European festivals, one in Bath, England, and the other near Gstaad, in the Bernese Oberland of Switzerland. Hephzibah Menuhin has appeared frequently at the festivals, both as a soloist and as accompanist for her brother.
Today the Menuhins appear together in Ann Arbor for the first time, although it is Mr. Menuhin's ninth recital performed under the auspices of the University Musical Society since 1932. In July, 1967, both Yehudi and Hephzibah were featured soloists with the Bath Festival Orchestra, which Yehudi conducted, at the Fair Lane Festival presented by the Society on the Dearborn Campus of The University of Michigan.
Both Menuhins live with their families in London where Yehudi has established a boarding school for musically talented youngsters under the age of sixteen. One of his own sons is musically inclined, and his soninlaw Fou Ts'ong, the Chinese pianist, frequently appears with him in recital as he did here in 196S.
