Description: Yehudi Menuhin was the 20th century's best violinist. He was a kid prodigy but the boy behind the violin was harder to know. Endlessly touring and crossing continents and cultures, his contract with EMI was the longest in the history of the melody industry. He took classical melody out of the concert hall because he believed melody was for everyone and had the power to change lives. An impassioned idealist, Yehudi wanted to give more to the globe - he became a tireless warrior for humanitarian problems he believed in. In this film, commemorating the 100th year of his birth, family and close mates recall his extraordinary musical life, in which he embraced jazz and Indian ragas as much as Bach, Beethoven and Bartok. And wonderful home films take us on an intimate behind-the-scenes adventure from his childhood in California, to meeting gypsies in Romania and travelling to India and beyond.
