About Jeremy Menuhin

British pianist Jeremy Menuhin is the son of violinist Yehudi Menuhin. He attended Eton College, and after graduation studied composition with Nadia Boulanger, conducting with Hans Swarowsky, and piano with Mindu Katz. Menuhin performed with the London Philharmonic Orchestra in 1966, and made his first recording on Angel Records with that orchestra in 1968, performing with his father and his aunts Hepzibah Menuhin and Yaltah Menuhin. A strained tendon caused him to cancel performances in the mid-'70s, but in 1984 he made his comeback in New York and won the Young Concert Artists Piano Competition. He has appeared with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, the English Chamber Orchestra, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, and the Salzburg Mozarteum, among many others, though he has recorded most often as a chamber musician. His recording of Bartók's violin sonatas with Yehudi Menuhin appeared on the Adès label and won the Grand Prix du Disque. ~ Blair Sanderson
