Yehudi Menuhin in Edinburgh Festival - in the middle of 1948

from Unfinished Journey, page 342:

Meanwhile countless other festivals took root in different parts of the world, so that summers quickly grew as thick with commitments as winters. Among the earliest was the Edinburgh, which I first visited in its second year, in 1948, an occasion triply notable – for Gerard’s birth, reunion with Bruno Walter and a superb performance of the Mozart Concertante for Violin and Viola by Isaac Stern and William Primrose.
