25. Paganini-Jazz for Piano (Arr. for Jazz Quartet)

The Idea: The 24 Caprices by Niccolò Paganini can be re-experienced in a totally new sound image. Partly, there are arrangements of the caprices for violin and piano by already deceased composers such as Robert Schumann and Fritz Kreisler. Prof. N. Tarkmann, who already arranged music for Jonas Kaufmann and Anna Netrebko, will arrange these versions for the new instrumentation violin and orchestra. Additionally, contemporary composers such ans Fazil Say and Andrea Csollány created completely new arrangements for the solo caprices.
The special challenge for the composers is to ensure that the orchestra is not only a petty sound carpet but to create a new, edgy and top-class compendium on the basis of Paganini’s caprices. The famous original artistically-compositionally charges the new works and accords the orchestra a technically, compositionally and artistically demanding task. Meanwhile, the virtousity of the violin must not be impaired.
The “Caprices are much more than just ‘technical studies’, each of them is a little jewel for every violinist to date”, says the young violinist. He made it his business too give these jewels a new cutting.
