 Yaltah Menuhin was born of Russian parents in San Francisco on 7th October 1921, the youngest of three extraordinarily musical children. Yaltah was named after her mother's hometown in Crimea. At the age of three, she was already part of the rigorous regime imposed on her siblings: the family employed tutors for the children, and Yaltah had her first piano lessons from the wife of the tutor in harmony and counterpoint. 

She was taken to Paris at the age of four when her brother, Yehudi and sister, Hephzibah went to study there. Marcel Ciampi, engaged to teach Hephzibah, initially refused to entertain the notion of teaching Yaltah at such a young age; however, Yaltah so impressed him with her spontaneous rendition of Schumann's Kinderszenen, that he agreed to take her on as well. Her taking piano lessons did not mean that her parents considered her - or for that matter, Hephzibah - to be capable of pursuing a career in music: Yaltah's mother in particular was firmly opposed to the idea that her daughters would follow in Yehudi's footsteps. Apart from Ciampi, she studied with Rudolf Serkin in Basel, Armando Silvestri in Rome and Carl Friedberg in New York.

One of Yaltah's earliest orchestral appearances was with Pierre Monteux and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, playing Beethoven's "Emperor" Concerto. Over the years Yaltah performed a wide repertoire. She played a pivotal role in the careers of numerous young composers, particularly during her stay in Los Angeles in the 1950's. She had a great love of chamber music and performed the sonata literature of the violin, viola and 'cello, as well as works for larger groups. Yaltah gave many first performances of works by Eric Zeisl, George Antheil, Ernst Krenek, Frank Martin, Louis Gruenberg, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco and Walter Piston. She recorded for Everest, EMI, Deutsche Grammophon Gesellschaft, SPA, Music Library and EMI-World Record Club.

Yaltah's tours took her from Alaska to New Zealand; from Texas to Switzerland. She appeared in duo recitals with the 'cellists Gabor Rejto, George Neikrug, Guy Fallot and Felix Schmidt; violinist Israel Baker; violists Michael Mann and Paul Doktor, and with Joel Ryce in duo-piano with whom she appeared widely in recital, in double-concerto's and in television specials in Paris, London and New York. The duo Menuhin/Ryce won the coveted Harriet Cohen International Music Award in 1962.

Yaltah and Joel were blissfully married for almost forty years. British audiences may recall the "Carnival of the Animals" for the BBC, with the Menuhins and Joel Ryce, and the telecast of the Mozart Triple Concerto at Yehudi's 50th birthday concert from the Royal Festival Hall, London. Her recorded favourites include the "family" recording of the Mozart Triple Piano Concerto (Yaltah, Hephzibah and Jeremy at the piano, with Yehudi conducting) and the four-hand piano duets of Mozart with Joel. 

The highlights of Yaltah's career include a performance for the Queen at Windsor Castle in 1973, when she played the Schubert Nocturno with Yehudi and Ross Pople; the Mozart Double Piano Concerto with Hephzibah for the Willa Cather Centenary Celebrations in America, and a recital with Joel Ryce at Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, when they played Bartók's Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion. Her charity performances included evenings for the British Red Cross; the Organisation of Rehabilitation Training (ORT), Geneva; the Goulston Foundation, London; Pentonville Prison and for Friends of the Rose, Geneva.

Yaltah was a co-founder in 1965 (with Stefan Askenase and Johannis Wasmuth) and director of "Arts and Music", an international non-profit social project for the benefit of young artists and the arts in general. Marcel Marceau and Oskar Kokoschka were among its strongest supporters. "Arts and Music" - still active to this day - was housed in a beautiful old railway station at Rolandseck, near Bonn. She took a very keen interest in youth orchestras and played with the Brighton Youth Orchestra, also undertaking tours in Wales with Aelodau'r Gerddorfa, the all-Wales Youth Orchestra. 

A gifted linguist, Yaltah wrote a poem each day of the year in one of six languages. At 13 years of age an anthology of her poetry, entitled Malgré l'Espace, was published privately. The anthology is currently held by the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas.

There can be no doubt that Yaltah lived under the shadow of her more famous brother and sister; in spite of the fact that many, Yehudi included, considered her to be the most talented of the three Menuhins, she never quite managed to match the careers Yehudi and Hephzibah had. This did not lead to bitterness on Yaltah's part; she completely and unequivocally worshipped her siblings, and remained devoted to - even slightly in awe of - them for all her life. 

Much like her brother, Yaltah was a wonderful facilitator, effortlessly and guilelessly bringing together people from all walks of life, musically and in friendship. Yaltah was surrounded by people from all walks of life, young and old, and her home was a haven to everybody. To quote Yehudi: "Yaltah is a ministering angel, handing out remedies, crutches, comfort to the ailing who come to her door, reaping the rewards in kindness and gratitude that life has otherwise denied her.". 

Yaltah died at her home in London on 9th June, 2001; beautiful, spirited and independent to the very end, just a few days after giving her final recital at the Orwell Park School, Suffolk, of which she was an honorary patron and where she was a regular and much-loved guest. Her swansong proved to be the Chopin Preludes and the Debussy Preludes Book I. 

Yaltah's last letter to us, written on the train from London to Suffolk, on her way to this concert, makes for grateful yet painful reading [the week before, we had lovingly and painstakingly transferred some of Yaltah and Joel's own recordings, which she had not been able to listen to for many years, from LP to CD]: 

" ... thank you for your magical transformation of long-unplayed music (.....); you have restored so much happiness to this ancient world of mine (.....); it is another lease on life ....."

Classical Music Discoveries is currently on hiatus for September 2014
This is a rebroadcast from 2 July 2011 - one of our 4 Most Popular Shows of Season 7.
For comments about this show please email: Ken@ClassicalMusicDiscoveries.com 

Sofja Gülbadamova, prizewinner of many international competitions in USA, Spain, France, Germany and Russia, has won 2008 the first prizes at two prestigious piano competitions in France: the International Piano Competition in Aix-en-Provence as well as the 6th International Francis Poulenc Piano Competition, where she also received the special prize for the best interpretation of Poulenc’s music. 2010 brought new success: in August at the Rosario Marciano International Piano Competition (Vienna, Austria) Sofja Gülbadamova was awarded the Grand Prix and a few months later, in October, she won the 2nd prize at the International Piano Competition “André Dumortier” in Belgium.

A very important event of the summer 2012 was Sofja Gülbadamova’s debut recital at one of the most significant piano festivals in Europe, “Rarities of piano music” in Husum (Germany) where her 3-hours-long program consisting of almost unknown works by Gabriel Fauré, Reynaldo Hahn, Claude Delvincourt, Ernst von Dohnányi, Claude Debussy, Francis Poulenc and Peter Tschaikovsky has been highly acclaimed by both the press and the public. Not only the program itself but also standing ovations already after the first half of this enormously challenging concert proved to be another “rarity” of this festival in spite of its extremely critical and professional audience. A reinvitation for the year 2013 followed. The CD from the festival 2012 edition, published by the danish label Danacord, where Sofja Gülbadamova’s recital is represented by a third of the total time, has been enthousiastically reviewed by the international musical press, BBC Music Magazine as well as International Piano (Jan./Feb.2014) among them, and has been selected as Editor’s Choice in the November 2013 issue of GRAMOPHONE.

Appearance in July 2012 at the festival “Liszt en Provence” in France where Sofja Gülbadamova gave two recitals on one evening performing all ballades by Chopin, Brahms, Liszt as well as those by Debussy and Fauré was one of the highlights of this year.

In June 2012 she was invited to the Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival in Detroit (USA) where she played with James Tocco, Yehonatan Berick and David Geringas, among the others. In May 2012 she gave a recital at the historic Ehrbarsaal (Ehrbar Hall) in Vienna (Austria) and in February 2012 she was featured as a soloist in a concert in Paris (France) in three piano concertos in a row (Haydn Piano Concerto in D major Hob.XVIII:11, Mozart Piano Concerto in E flat Major KV 271 “Jeunehomme” and Chopin Piano Concerto in e minor op.11) with the Orchestre de Chambre de la Nouvelle Europe under the baton of Nicolas Krauze. This event has been praised by the musical press calling the pianist a “touching, sincere and inspired artist” and describing her performance as “infatuating but never hysterical, expressive but never maudlin, Sofja Gülbadamova’s playing is literally overwhelming”…

In November 2012 Sofja Gülbadamova followed an invitation to give a recital and to perform in a chamber music formation at one of the most important festivals in Argentina, “Semana musical Llao Llao”.

Last highlights include recitals at the major French festivals such as the Festival “Journées Lyriques de Chartres”, Festival de St. Lizier, the Festival de St. Robert, “Les Nuits Pianistiques” in Aix-en-Provence, “Les Nuits de Piano d’Erbalunga” in Corsica throughout the summers 2012 and 2011, debut recitals in Washington D.C. in April 2011 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts and in London in the St. Martin-in-the-Fields in April 2010 during the “World Concert Pianists” series. Sofja Gülbadamova played a very successful tour throughout Chili in January 2010, where she gave recitals in the Teatro Municipal in Viña del Mar and during the festivals “Semanas Musicales” in Reñaca as well as the „Semanas Musicales“ in Frutillar. She also gave a masterclass in the “Conservatory Sergei Prokofiev” in Viña del Mar.

In 2010 and 2009, she was invited to perform at eminent venues such as the “Schönberger Musiksommer” (Germany), the international festival “Les nuits du Suquet” in Cannes, the Festival de la Vézère, the Festival d’Hardelot and “Liszt en Provence”, all of them in France. Another highlight of the year 2009 has been the performance as a soloist in Antonin Dvorak Concerto for piano and orchestra at the “Piano nights” festival in Chisinau (Moldavia).

Sofja Gülbadamova performs regularly at famous festivals, such as the Schleswig-Holstein music festival, Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the Rheingau Festival (Germany), the International Music Festival Lucerne (Switzerland), the “Salzburger Schlosskonzerte” (Austria), to name just a few.

Sofja Gülbadamova concertizes extensively throughout Europe and the United States, for instance in France she appeared at prestigious venues such as the Cité de la Musique and the Salle Cortot in Paris as well as at the Arsenal in Metz, to name just a few. Invited by numerous German cities to perform, she played with the State Radio and Television Orchestra of Russia, the Collegium Instrumentale Halle, the Magdeburg Philharmonic, the Lübeck Philharmonic in Germany among the others.

As a chamber musician she collaborates with such outstanding artists as James Tocco, Denis Goldfeld, Priya Mitchell, Alexandre Brussilovsky, Gert von Bülow, Aleksandr Khramouchin, Guillaume Martigné , Mark Drobinsky as well as the Prometeo Quartet, Psophos Quartet, the Aviv Quartet and the New Russian Quartet.

Sofja Gülbadamova was born in 1981 in Moscow where she began her musical studies at the Gnessins Special Music School with Mikhail Khokhlov. She continued her academic piano courses at the Musikhochschule Lübeck in the class of the exceptional American pianist James Tocco. She also studied at the Paris Conservatory with Jacques Rouvier as well as at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris with Guigla Katsarava and David Lively, where she was awarded a scholarship by the Zygmunt Zaleski Foundation.

Sofja has recorded for Russian, American, Polish, Spanish, French and German radio and television. Several CD recordings have already been published in Germany and France, notably at the “Passavant Music” recording company.

Hampson Sisler, organist and composer, is one of the most prolific composers today with over 100 works to his credit.  His works were written for organ, chorus, concert band, chamber and symphony orchestra.  

At 17 years old, Hampson was the youngest person ever awarded the American Guild of Organists’ coveted Fellowship status and has had performances of his works the world over.

Today, in addition to being a composer, Sisler maintains a dual career as an organist and choral director. He has served seventeen churches, most notably Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn, where Abraham Lincoln was an occasional attendee, and Central Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, where Charles Ives served in the same position in the early 1900s.

Currently, Hampson Sisler is the music director at the historic St. James Episcopal Church in Elmhurst, New York. His recent compositions have been performed in Bulgaria, Israel, Czech Republic, Russia and the United States. The majority of his orchestral works have been recorded on the MSR Classics label. Mr. Sisler is presented world-wide by BV Artists International.

Classical Music Discoveries is proud to begin this 8 part series on Hampson Sisler which will detail his life and his music.  A new episode will be broadcast each month.
