About the album

Anyone playing the violin cannot get around the music of Paganini. Paganini is usually associated with the impossible and yet possible violin technique he invented, so much so that - because of their degree of complexity – a large part of his compositions is used for technical practice purposes. But meanwhile, the musical artistry in his works has often been overlooked or ignored. Undoubtedly, most of Paganini’s works are technically incredibly challenging, and his historical 24 Caprices are often used as the ultimate technical étude. Besides the 24 Caprices, Nel Cor Piu Non Mi Sento and God Save the King, the two theme pieces with variations for solo violin, are probably even more iconic in that all technical aspects of violin playing are demonstrated. Using the left hand pizzicato to accompany the theme, which is played at the same time using the bow, as well as the double harmonics, did not even appear in his 24 Caprices. But underneath all those dazzling skills, we should not forget about the music itself. I can hardly think of a Paganini piece without a beautiful and enjoyable Italian operatic aria. So, why not sing along? Therefore , I hope when listening to Paganini’s music on this recording, we can all appreciate not only the diabolic finger fireworks on the outside, but also the angel-like lyrical melodies on the inside.’ (from liner notes)
