Paganini - 24 caprices for violin solo


Paganini - 24 caprices for violin solo. You can download the PDF sheet music Paganini - 24 caprices for violin solo on this page. The most astounding of Paganini's compositions are his Twenty-four Caprices for solo violin, which even today mark the outer limits of traditional violin technique. Their date of composition is uncertain. Paganini himself claimed that he wrote them while still a teenager studying in Parma with Fernando Paer, the Italian composer who served for a time as Napoleon's maltre de chapelle and composed an opera titled Leonora in 1804 on the identical subject that Beethoven treated in his only opera a year later. A century and a half after his death, Paganini continues to fascinate for both the supernatural qualities of his life and the sparkling treasury of music that he left to posterity. The standards of performance that he established still lie at the limits of violin technique, and playing his compositions remains one of the most daunting challenges for today's virtuosos.
