Yehudi Menuhin, long considered one of the greatest violinists of our time, is also a man of passionate and articulate idealism. His range of concerns is wide, covering a variety of subjects from music to politics, from education to environment. The writings collected here have as their focus the quality of human life and the variety of experience. Music quite naturally occupies the foremost place in Theme and Variations. The author explores its contribution to humanity and its public, the amateur musician, new music, the critic's role, the violin, improvisation and interpretation, individual composers and musicians ranging from Bach to Ravi Shankar. Turning to areas outside his chosen field, Menuhin discusses education, the environment, and contemporary world problems. He concludes with a thought-provoking essay on "The World Citizen."

The violin by Yehudi Menuhin( Book )

19 editions published between 1971 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this noisy, chaotic world the violin speaks with a musical purity that unites people across centuries, cultures and languages. This magisterial new book by the acknowledged master of the violin, Yehudi Menuhin, paints a compelling portrait of this magical instrument, and of the composers, performers, teachers and instrument-makers who, like Yehudi Menuhin himself, have fallen under the spell of the violin. A modern Orpheus, Menuhin has for over 70 years been traveling the world with the music which for him represents a message of peace. Here he charts the journey of the violin from a simple musical arc to the refined Stradivarius, from the instrument of everyday life for many traveling people, to the performance instrument of salons and concert halls. Menuhin introduces us to the astounding richness of the voice of the violin, whose appearance in ethnic music from East and West, popular and folk music, classical and jazz, has established its repertoire upon an interdependence of many musical genres. Writing in an accessible, highly personal style, Yehudi Menuhin weaves a history of violins and violin people with his own memories of composers such as Stravinsky, Bartók, Elgar, and Sibelius, and of fellow performers such as Fritz Kreisler, Bruno Walter, Stéphane Grappelli, and Ravi Shankar. Lavishly illustrated with images of the violin in fine art and documentary photography, the book also includes many portraits of the author, and of other composers and performers. The Violin, through the words of Yehudi Menuhin, will speak powerfully to all music lovers
