The inspiring autobiography of one of the greatest musicians of the twentieth century.
Yehudi Menuhin (1916-1999) made his extraordinary debut at the age of seven, playing with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. In the following years his career was to take him all over the world, playing with leading
conductors and orchestras. Menuhin was equally recognized for his committed humanitarianism, exemplified by the championship of young musicians and his work for international understanding. Unfinished Journey reflects the many and varied interests of one of the most gifted musicians and original intellects of the 20th century.
Yehudi Menuhin first published his autobiography in 1976 then updated it in 1996 when it was reissued. This is the first paperback publication of that edition, now supplemented with a preface by Christopher Hope and a concluding chapter by Michael Binyon.
