Yehudi Menuhin plays Mendelssohn
Available on Prime Video
This is one of the most surprising images, that of Yehudi Menuhin filmed in Charlie Chaplin's studios in Hollywood in 1947 and conducted by Antal Dorati with the Hollywood Symphonic Orchestra formed especially for the occasion. Soloist is Menuhin who is 32 years old and at the height of his career. These images, recorded in an afternoon, show Menuhin interpreting Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto.
