Notes and Editorial Reviews

Listening to 70 minutes’ worth of relentless violin pyrotechnics can easily addle the brain. But such is the daring of Paganini’s invention that it’s impossible to be bored, especially when that veteran of virtuoso fiddlers Ruggiero Ricci continually takes your breath away with playing of such outrageous brilliance.
