Tribute to Yehudi Menuhin

Daniel Hope & Sebastian Knauer

Wednesday 23 march - 18h00

Théâtre du Jeu de Paume

The violinist Yehudi Menuhin was born a century ago and marked the history with passionate performances along with his thirst for passing his skills to young people and the public at large. Who better than Daniel Hope, one of his last and closest pupils to pay him homage?

The British prodigy has concocted a programme where each piece lights up a part of Menuhin's personality, going from Bach to Enesco and Ravel, whose Kaddish is a nod to the master's Jewish heritage.
