While I was still studying with Bron, Menuhin said, ‘I can’t teach you myself because I don’t have the time; but if we go on the road together, I could coach you while we’re on tour.’ We gave around 60 concerts together and it was a very steep learning curve for me; I was the soloist while he conducted, and often he would literally instruct me on the concert platform. During one performance of the Beethoven Concerto, he beckoned to me at the end of the first movement and whispered, ‘At the start of the second movement, try beginning on the D string, not the A string,’ and I had to work out the fingerings then and there. It was as if he was playing vicariously through me, trying the experiments he’d perhaps have made if he were the soloist. At the end of the concert he might say, ‘Well, that wasn’t the best idea, was it?’ But it meant that every concert was certainly special.
