Yehudi Menuhin’s key to success was his excellent music education as a child and his ongoing dialogue and collaboration with fellow musicians. To enable young violinists from all over the world to have an equally enriching and stimulating environment, he founded the Menuhin Competition in Folkestone/Britain in 1983. Dubbed ‘the Olympics of the Violin’ it is the world’s leading competition for young musicians under the age of 22. Many of its prize winners have gone on to successful international careers.
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Yehudi Menuhin’s birthday, the Menuhin Competition returns to London for the first time since 2004. International soloists and 44 of the world’s best young violinists will star in an 11-day festival of concerts and events for all ages from 7-17 April 2016. With a star-studded jury – many of them former prize winners – and a programme dedicated to Yehudi Menuhin, the Menuhin Competition London 2016 is an event not to be missed.
