December 30, 1928
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Before a capacity audience in Carnegie Hall, Yehudi Menuhin, twelve-year-old violinist, played with the New York Philharmonic-Symphony Orchestre on Thursday night. This was his second appearance in New York, the first having been with the Philharmonic a year ago.

Performing the Tschaikowsky concerto, the young violinist was hailed by his audience. Metropolitan critics were of the opinion that in his previous appearance Yehudi gave a greater performance, although his great talent is not minimized. This year he used a full size violin, while previously he had played on a specially constructed smaller instrument.
