Lord Yehudi Menuhin, relaxing at his home in the Greek isles, tells the story of his wonderful career on the eve of his 80th birthday. A wealth of rare archival material illustrates this highly informative and entertaining profile of the world's greatest violinist, providing insight into the life of the young San Franciscan wonderchild, his sudden rise to stardom which led to an outstanding international career, his encounters with the world's greatest musicians and music traditions, and his involvement in world politics.
