Paganini 24 Caprices for Solo Violin

Paganini 24 Caprices are probably the most difficult violin works ever written in the world. In these pieces, there are scales, arppegios, fingered octaves, tenth, slurred staccatos and more which are supposed to be played extremely fast. Although they were written between 1802 and 1817 and published in 1819, not very many violinists have completed all 24 yet. This recording is studio live and performed in Paganini's original bowing.
