A feast for heart & ears. Without any doubt, Paganini was the greatest violin virtuous ever lived. By the way: marvellous sound on this reissue!
Stunning album so beautifully played. As can be expected, there are music lovers who relish the technical details of Paganini’s violin concertos, and then there are those who find themselves ever-so-comfortable in the rich and lush romanticism of his quitessentially Italian expressiveness. You may freely count your servant in the latter category: in th eopinion of your servant, no one wrote more exquisitely romantic violin music (with the exception of Pablo de Sarasate) than Niccolo Paganini, and Yehudi Menuhin captures the essence of this romanticism at the highest levels of technicianship and expressive musicality!!! The cadenzas are from an older era, but they are no less technically demanding, and Yehudi Menuhin shows himself more than equal to the task. An absolute benchmark recording for all lovers of violin pyrotechnics, as well as violin students.
