The Right Honourable Yehudi Menuhin, Baron Menuhin, ( 1916 - 1999) was an American-born violinist, violist, and conductor who spent most of his performing career in the United Kingdom.

He was a student of Louis Persinger, George Enescu, and Adolf Busch. The name Yehudi means 'Jew' in Hebrew.

Yehudi Menuhin performed for allied soldiers during World War II, and went with the composer Benjamin Britten to perform for the inmates of Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, after its liberation in April 1945. He went back to Germany in 1947 to perform music under the conductor Wilhelm Furtwaengler as an act of reconciliation, becoming the first Jewish musician to go back to Germany after the Holocaust.

Careful practice and study combined with meditation and yoga helped him overcome many of his problems, and he continued to perform to an advanced age, becoming known for profound interpretations of an austere quality.

In 1990 he was awarded the prestigious Glenn Gould Prize in recognition of his lifetime of contributions.
