Well, I always wondered what happened to Menuhin in his later years. His tone always had that haunting quality and his intonation was always superb, but I wondered what happened to his bow control? I had heard many things: crowbar smashing into his right arm, WWII accident, etc. What is the real deal? Is it just lack of practice?
Not that I don't love him. His musicianship is great, and he is one of my all time favorites. I am currently reading his autobiography, Unfinished Journey (Twenty Years Later) and I love it!
