The Yehudi Menuhin School proudly presents it's debut commercial recording in collaboration with Orchid Classics, the culmination of a three-year endeavour conceived in early 2020. Welcoming several established stars of the performing world and guided by producer Andrew Keener, the album showcases the diverse talents of pupils aged 12-19. Spanning multiple genres and instruments, the carefully curated programme takes listeners on a global musical odyssey, beginning in England with Elgar's Chanson de Matin and weaving through Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, and the Americas. Notable stops include Sarasate's fiery violin duo Navarra, with Coco Tomita and her sister Yume, Debussy's mystical Danses Sacrée et Profane, and Fela Sowande's cheerful "Akinla."This significant milestone in The Menuhin School's storied history showcases the exceptional talents of it's students and the institution's commitment to musical education. The Yehudi Menuhin School invites listeners to embark on this musical journey, transcending boundaries and celebrating the universal language of music.
