Notes & Reviews:

Paganini's playing unsettled and astonished Liszt such that he retreated to his hotel room for two weeks and seriously doubted if he could become as good a pianist as Paganini was violinist. Schumann claimed that it was hearing Paganini play that jolted him out of his chosen career as a man of letters to become a composer. Paganini encouraged the stories that he had sold his soul to the devil in order to play so fantastically - such spin and hype was good for the box office. It did however result in the church refusing him burial in consecrated ground.
