Paganini/Wieniawski: Caprices And Etudes For Violin

Books | Violin

Publisher: Dover Publications
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
Paganini and Wieniawski were two of the most famous violin virtuosos of the 19th century, and composers of a number of the most treasured masterpieces in the violin repertory. Here, in a comprehensive playing edition, are three of their most celebrated works for solo violin: Paganini's innovative Caprices, Op. 1 and Wieniawski's major collections of studies, l'Ecole Moderne, op. 10 and Etudes-Caprices, op. 18. Paganini's twenty-four Caprices are a virtual textbook of the phenomenal technical breakthroughs that he achieved, showing off his trail-blazing array of fingered octaves, double, triple and quadruple stop chords, and 'ricochet bowings'. Wieniawski's etudes fuse unmistakeable Slavonic colours with his already formidable technique and are, like Paganini's Caprices, among the most demanding works in the solo violin repertory, and essential parts of every professional violinist's training
