The Genius of Paganini

Another one of my all time favourite Composers, Niccolò Paganini an Italian violinist, violist, guitarist, and composer (1782–1840). He was the most celebrated violin virtuoso of his time. A truly transformative composer when it comes to violin compositions – what one would call in the world of technology nowadays “Disruptive” – and did he throw all the rules of violin playing out the window? He essentially dragged the sound of the violin/techniques of playing it to new levels. One could possibly hear conversations during his time, something along the lines of; Oh, I didn’t know you could do that….now that’s a new one…..hey, that’s crazy!…..is this even legal?…….OK, let’s give it up and just listen.

Hope you enjoy!
