Homage to the world-famous violinist Yehudi Menuhin, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday on 22 April 2016.

Though he never lost his gentleness of mien, Yehudi Menuhin possessed great inner strength and a philosophy that sustained him through a hectic existence, lived out in the public gaze. 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 infect all those around him. He cast a spell on all who met him. Read Yehudi Menuhin's complete biography on
