Paganini: 24 Capricci / Thomas Zehetmair

Album Summary

>Paganini, Niccolò : Caprices (24) for Violin solo, Op. 1
Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

One of today's most versatile violinists presents a new account of Paganini's unsurpassed compendium of technical difficulties. Zehetmair plays the caprices as "improvised character pieces" - eloquent, full of temperament and with the greatest rhythmic and sonic flexibility. His extraordinary technical perfection is coupled with a rare musical insight and sense of drama. Zehetmair's ECM recordings - both as soloist and in his quartet - have met with unanimous praise in recent years.

Gramophone Magazine
... a disc full of remarkable violin-playing and presents a powerful, individual view of the music.

BBC Music Magazine
Zehetmair employs an astonishing dynamic range, articulated by a glittering array of lifted and legato bow strokes that tickles both the ear and the imagination. ... a white knuckle ride from beginning to end.
