A Double Anniversary
Menuhin to Play Works by Corelli
And Viotti in Commemoration
By Alice Eversman
Commemoration of the birth
anniversaries of two great vio
linists and composers will be
observed locally Tuesday night
when Yehudi Menuhin plays
works by Corelli and Viotti
In Constitution Hall. There
has been little in the way of a
national or international re
membering of these important
men this year. Yet without
them, the history of violin per
formance in particular and
perhaps the history of music
would have been retarded* if
not turned into other paths.
Born in 1653. Arcangelo
Corelli stands at the head of
a dynasty of which Jean Bap
tiste Viotti, who came into this
world a century and three
months later, is a direct de
scendant. For through Gio
vanni Somis, pupil of Corelli,
and through his pupil, Gae
tano Pugnani, the principles
of Corelli’s art were trans
mitted with fidelity to Viotti
\yho so amplified them as to be
recognized today as “the
father of modern violin play
ing.” As composers they left
an indelible mark on both or
chestral and solo composition,
Corelli in the role of reformer,
and Viotti as innovator in the
concerto form and in the use
of the orchestra iif accom
panying.
Lives Differed
Except for the adulation
heaped upon them as the
greatest violinists of their gen
eration, the lives of the two
artists had little simularity.
Corelli’s moved rather calm
ly in the cultured atmosphere
of Roman aristocracy until
the end. Viotti’s was filled
with trouble, brightened only
by the constant devotion of
his fervid admirers. Both had
the good fortune early in life
to find powerful protectors
among the church hierarchy
so that their musical instruc
tion and their existence dur
ing that period were taken
CcirG of.
Corelli, busy in his luxuri
ous surroundings with pupils
that came from all over Eu
rope to study with him, and
with his composing, was able
to accumulate a fortune esti
mated at $250,000 at his death.
His large collection of paint
ings was one of the most val
uable in Europe. He was bur
ied with pomp in the Panth
eon near to the tomb of Ra
phael and for years his pupils
marked his death anniversary
with a procession through the
city to his grave.
Not His Fault
In his will, Viotti wrote, “a
little earth will suffice for such
a miserable creature as my
self.” There is no accurate
record of where he is buried,
although it is supposed he lies
in St. Pancras Cemetery in
London. His poverty rested
heavily on his mind in the
last years of his life and he
sought in his testament to re
imburse those who had helped
him, by instructions for the
sale of his few things of value.
The fault was not his. A
favorite with Frederick the
Great, with whom he played
concerted numbers, a welcome
artist in every city he appeared
in on concert tours, and so
popular in Paris that his in
tended stay of a few months
lengthened into 10 years, he
had the world at his feet. But
fate was against him. The
clouds of the French Revolu
tion were gathering. The
patronage extended him by
Marie Antoinette, while it
opened the way for him to
bring Italian opera again to
Paris as director of the
Theatre de Monsieur, was cut
short by her arrest.
Fleeing to England, he was
for a time well established as
an artist on Salomon’s con
cert series and later as part

director of the Italian opera
at King’s Theater. The finger
of suspicion pointed to him.
Accused, unjustly it was
proven, of contact with the
revolutionists in Paris, he was
banished from England. This
marked the beginning of the
end. Although he was per
mitted to return to London
thrpe years later, he was
forced to become a wine mer
chant for a living, an unsuc
cessful venture. A last effort
in Paris to recuperate his for
tune, where friends acclaimed
him and Louis XVIII made
him director of the Opera,
ended also in disaster. All this
affected his health and shortly
thereafter he died.
Men of Vision
Although today the works
of Viotti and Corelli are
classed more in the students’
repertoire, they remain the
means of acquiring the daz
zling technique and suavity of
style the present-day artists
of the violin have achieved.
The art of composition was
enlarged . immeasurably by
their talent and succeeding
composers have paid homage
to their vision.
Mr. Menuhin will give a
first local performance of
Paul Ben-Haim’s "Sonata in
G,” and an unpublished
“Sonata in F Major,” by Men
delssohn. The work by Israel’s
great composer was written in
Tel Aviv in 1951 and dedicated
to Menuhin, who gave it its
world premiere in New York
last year. Os Mendelssohn’s
sonata, a scant word is found
in his letters. From Berlin,
in August, 1838, he wrote to
Ferdinand Hiller: ... “A very
important branch of piano
music, and one of which I am
particularly sond —trios, quar
tets, and other pieces with ac
companiment, genuine cham
ber music—is quite forgotten
now and I feel a great urge
to do something new of this
kind. It was with this idea that
I recently wrote the sonata for
violin . . .” Mr. Menuhin has
a photostat copy of the origi
nal manuscript.
Greek Musicians'
Tour Delayed
The appearance of The
Royal Festival Company of
Greece, known as Panegyris,
has had to be postponed two
weeks according to an an
nouncement issued by Patrick
Hayes, managing director of
The American University Con
certs. The disruption of com
munications and travel due to
the recent earthquakes in
Greece has delayed the Amer
ican tour scheduled for this
oompany of singers, dancers
and musicians.
The Washington appearance
was to have been in Constitu
tion Hall on Tuesday, Decem
ber 15. The date has now been
moved to Tuesday, December
29. The tickets now held by
the Evening Series subscribers
for December 15 will be hon
ored on December 29.
