Yehudi Menuhin: Journeys with a violin
4 January 2016 – 30 November 2016, Museum ground floor
To be a child prodigy and world-renowned violinist would be quite enough for many people – but not for Yehudi Menuhin. Over the years he added conductor, festival curator, school founder, philanthropist, peer, social commentator and yogi to his never-ending repertoire of activities. The Royal Academy of Music Museum will unveil a new exhibition on this iconic musician on 4th January 2016.
Based on the theme of journeys, the exhibition traces Menuhin’s intellectual and geographical travels.
Please find more information on the exhibition here.
The exhibition is part of a series of violin-focused events presented by the Royal Academy of Music, host conservatoire for the Menuhin Competition London 2016, marking the centenary of Yehudi Menuhin’s birth on 22nd April 2016.
