About this Recording

LIPINSKI, K.: Capriccios, Opp. 10 and 27 (Xi Chen)

Polish-born virtuoso Karol Józef Lipiński was recognized as one of the best violinists of the 19th century, rivalling Paganini for the title of greatest violinist in Europe. Lipiński dedicated his Capriccios, Op 10 to Paganini, but ultimately combined Paganini’s innovations with the depth of Spohr, Tartini and Viotti’s musical philosophies to create his own unique style and avoid bravura display alone. The Capriccios, Op 27 explore rich expression and tone as well as spectacular runs and double-stopping.
