The colophon explains that Lawrence Clark Powell commissioned Saul and Lillian Marks to reprint this passage from Theme and Variations, a 1972 memoir by the violinist Yehudi Menuhin (1916 – 1999). Powell was a fan of the memoir and of Menuhin’s work, which included important performances the compositions of Béla Bartók.
