Notes and Editorial Reviews

Quarta's revolutionary approach to virtuosic Italian music entails studying autograph manuscripts in enormous detail in order that his performances are as close to the composer's intentions as possible, thus giving these recordings unrivalled authenticity. As a first prize winner of the Nicolò Paganini International Violin Competition (1991) Massimo Quarta has become strongly connected with the works of Paganini. He is regarded as one of the most brilliant violinists of his generation and performs regularly throughout his native Italy and the rest of Europe.
