Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Accardo succeeds in making Paganini's most routine phrases sound like the noblest utterances and he invests these Caprices with an eloquence far beyond the sheer display they offer. There are no technical obstacles and, both in breath and tone and in grandeur of conception, he is peerless. He observes all the repeats and has an excellent CD transfer."
