Yehudi menuhin ravi shankar west meets east album 2 - The Music • Yehudi Menuhin


From child prodigy to one of the 20th century’s finest and most celebrated artists, Yehudi Menuhin’s legacy lives on. In 2016, the centenary of his birth was celebrated by many special events and concerts (see the timeline), a BBC Four documentary film Who's Yehudi, and a highly acclaimed Warner Classics boxed set The Menuhin Century.

Shankar took the traditional four-movement western form and filled it with the sounds of India. The recording was an instant success and has been credited with bringing a new audience to the sitar and Indian classical music.

My father’s first name, Ravi, means “sun” in Sanskrit. In the months before he passed away, this song was a way for me to express my unwillingness to let him go.

The centerpiece of today's Doodle, by artist Kevin Laughlin, is a sitar. It has two bridges, one for the "drone" strings and the other for the melody strings. Laughlin's design shows the style of sitar Shankar played, which includes a second gourd-shape resonator at the top of the instrument's neck.

The Yehudi Menuhin Discography as a Conductor excludes recordings in which Lord Menuhin conducts from the bow, already listed in his Violinist’s discography.
