Paganini: Ghiribizzi for solo guitar / Janssens

Album Summary

>Paganini, Niccolò : Ghiribizzi (43) for Guitar, MS 43
Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The ultimate violin virtuoso, Niccolo Paganini also wrote more than 100 pieces for guitar, including these Ghiribizzi ("whims"). Composed for "a little girl in Naples," these works explore a wide range of musical styles idiomatic to the guitar. Many of the 43 short movements draw on themes by Rossini, Paisiello, Süssmayr, Mozart, Giuliani and, of course, Paganini himself. Praised by Les cahiers de la guitar as "inspired," Denis Sungho Janssens made his 2005 Carnegie Hall debut as a Rising Star of the European Concert Hall Organization.
