YEHUDI MENUHIN

Celebrating the greatest ever violin player

Yehudi Menuhin is recognised by many as the greatest violin player that ever lived.  Over the course of his life he was more than a performer, he was a conductor, educator and above all a passionate advocate for humanitarian issues.

a centenary celebration

2016, marked the centenary of Menuhin's birth, celebrated by many special events and concerts, a BBC Four documentary film Who's Yehudi, and a highly acclaimed Warner Classics boxed set The Menuhin Century.

As part of this celebratory campaign, we were honoured to be asked by the Menuhin family to create the website.

The Menuhin archives

We delved deep into the archives and found amazing sources of inspiration from the wealth of photographs and documents.

 

A visionary and artist

From child prodigy to one of the 20th century’s finest and most celebrated artists, Yehudi Menuhin’s legacy lives on. We created a subtly animated elegant timeline of his life and the legacy events that have happened since his death. http://www.menuhin.org/the-man

 

The legacy

The school and the competition; the festival and Live Music Now; the foundation and the academy – they are his evident legacy.

We designed a page detailing the various schools, academies, competitions and festivals around the world and a way of navigating the huge discography of the recordings made from 1925 until his death both as a violinist and conductor.
