History

Yehudi Menuhin and his family moved to Gstaad in 1957. He was fascinated and inspired by the elemental power of the region’s natural environment and commanding mountains and also was very impressed not only by the magnificent alpine arena, but also by the ideal environment offered in the region for an international education for his children.

The same year of his move to Gstaad, Menuhin played a concert in the lovely church of Saanen, becoming the first concert in the history of the Menuhin Festival, which since then is held every summer in the region, attracting numerous international soloists and music lovers to the Swiss Alpine region.
