His recording of Bartok’s Sonatas for violin and piano with his father, Yehudi Menuhin, was awarded the prestigious ‘Grand Prix du Disque’. HIs Schubert recordings for Dinemec Classics have been widely acclaimed. To quote the London Times: ‘Every harmonic side-step, every momentary change of pace is tasted to the full.’
In recent years Jeremy Menuhin has rediscovered composing, a legacy of his years with Nadia Boulanger. He has written a suite for two pianos in the Baroque manner, a string quartet, a piece for ‘cello and piano, a set of variations on a original theme for piano four-hands, a double piano concerto, a four-hand piano concerto in the baroque manner, and transformed 2 movements from Brahms’ sextets as well as the title movement from Schubert’s Death and the Maiden quartet. Jeremy Menuhin’s works have received enthusiastic reviews from various major critics:
‘Menuhin’s Suite in the Baroque Manner for two pianos (meticulously played by Menuhin and his wife Mookie LeeMenuhin) combines real knowledge with a lively melodic gift in a suite of which the great Bach himself might have been proud.’
– Sir Roger Scruton: ‘Counterpoint and Why it Matters’, (out of ‘The Future Symphony), who is the author of Music as Art.
‘The music contained in Jeremy Menuhin’s Variations on an Original Theme and the Fantasy is so varied – at times deeply moving, at others brilliant, full of fantasy, and engagingly entertaining, and yet possessed of a mysterious unity.’
– Bruno Monsaingeon, director of ‘Mstislav Rostropovich: the Indomitable Bow’, ‘Glenn Gould: Hereafter’, ‘Nadia Boulanger: Mademoiselle’, ‘Sviatoslav Richter: The Enigma’.
His transformation for 2 pianos of the Schubert quartet movement, along with other four hand pieces of Schubert, were recorded with his wife Mookie Lee- Menuhin, who together form the Menuhin Duo.
In late 2018 a CD entitled, ‘The Voice of Rebellion’ was released by Genuin Classics of Jeremy Menuhin’s two piano works, including the set of variations for four hands, played by the Menuhin Duo.
