Itzhak Perlman pays tribute on the 100th anniversary of Yehudi Menuhin's birth

The two great violinists are a generation apart, but share the 'Soil' Stradivarius now in Perlman's possession.

"I first played for Yehudi Menuhin at the age of 11 during his visit to Israel. Throughout my career, I was lucky enough to know him as a colleague and a friend.  I am honoured to be able to play his beloved 'Soil' Stradivarius every day. His legacy will remain both as the quintessential wunderkind and great artist."
