Notes & Reviews:

This release is a fascinating journey into violin virtuosity, made by one of the finest interpreters of the 18th- and 19th-century repertoire, Luca Fanfoni. In addition to Giuseppe Tartini's "Devil's Trill", Fanfoni performs some of the most popular and spectacular of Paganini's works, such as the famous "Witches", which in 1813 brought to the attention of international audiences the devilish aspect of the Genoese violinist's artistry. To complete the recording, a remarkable addition: the rediscovered complete version of Paganini's Mosé played on Paganini's own violin.
