About the album

Ricci followed the tradition of Váša Příhoda, the Czech virtuoso, who performed Paganini as a central part of his repertory (Ricci gave the U.S. premieres of both the 4th and 6th Violin Concertos). Giving so much attention to the works of the genoese composer, as he later said, he learned much of the violin-technique from Paganini’s works.  Mainly for this reason, Ricci was often associated with Paganini, but during his life he was firmly opposed to any categorization, and indeed he was used to say: “A specialist is somebody who plays all the other types of music worse”.
This 4 CDs set presents live and studio recordings, ranging from 1946 to 1970, including some rarities, never recorded commercially.
