PAGANINI, N.: 24 Caprices, Op. 1 (E. Scheid)

Paganini reserved his compositions for his own personal use as the world’s greatest and most hypnotic violin virtuoso and therefore published relatively little. He made an exception for his Op. 1, the Twenty Four Caprices for solo violin, published in Milan in 1820 but probably written around 1805. They are an astounding compendium of his technique as a performer and continue to challenge soloists and exhilarate audiences with myriad techniques including novel bowing variations, double stops, instrumental imitations, extended use of octaves, and flamboyant alternation of bowed notes and pizzicato. On this disc Edson Scheid performs the set on a period violin with all-gut strings and a classical bow.
