Yehudi Menuhin was one of the most famous child prodigies of the first half of the 20th century. In the 1930s, while still in his teens, Menuhin was recording some of the most famous concertos of the violin repertory. In some of these recordings, Menuhin was partnered or conducted by his famous mentor, Georges Enescu. On Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will hear Menuhin and Enesco playing Bach together, and Menuhin playing the Mendelssohn Violin Concert.
