Paganini's works for solo violin are among the most important and demanding in the repertoire. In addition to his famed Caprices, Op.1, Paganini wrote a series of characterful solo pieces that reveal his melodic and rhythmic gifts. Those selected here are either World Premiere Recordings or WPR of the critical edition, some - such as Alla Spagnola, the five waltzes and the Duetti - have only recently been rediscovered. His influence on Italian composers can be heard in the works he inspired from leading contemporaries and colleagues, where their preludes, caprices and Ă©tudes show the stylistic breadth and originality of Italian virtuosi.
