Baron Menuhin. OM KBE, Jewish American-Swiss violinist and conductor, widely considered one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century, who spent most of his performing career in Britain (April 22, 1916 - March 12, 1999) was born Yehudi Menuhin in New York City to a family of Lithuanian Jews. He played the Soil Stradivarius of 1714, considered one of the finest violins made by Italian luthier Antonio Stradivari of Cremona (1644-1737), one of two Stradivari violins named after Belgian industrialist Amedee Soil. A product of Stradivari's golden period, it is considered one of his finest. The Soil was acquired by Yehudi Menuhin in 1950 and in 1986 by its current owner Itzhak Perlman, who played this instrument while recording the Cinema Serenade with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in 1997. This instrument is characterized by its brilliant red varnish and a two-piece maple back with the flames of the grain joined, descending from the edges toward the center.
