True to Yehudi Menuhin’s humanitarian spirit and multicultural career, the concert programme offers a musical journey through jazz, classical, Indian and Gypsy music, in the company of Menuhin’s friends and past pupils. The great violinists Dr. L. Subramaniam (India), Valeriy Sokolov (Ukraine), Vadim Repin (Russia/Belgium), Gilles Apap (France), Iva Bittova (Czech Republic) and Kerson Leong (2010 winner of the Junior First Prize at the Menuhin Competition in Oslo) will be taking part; as well as Menuhin’s favourite student, Volker Biesenbender (Germany). Also performing will be the Turkish percussionist Burhan Oçal, and the Hungarian virtuoso of the gypsy violin, Roby Lakatos.
Special Guests: Roby Lakatos and Michael Guttman
