Niccolo Paganini was a legend in true sense of the word. He was in a league of his own as he rose above his contemporaries through his matchless violin techniques. His 24 caprices for Solo Violin say it all about him being a high caliber violinist. His style of playing the violin required speed and flexibility as he jumped from one position or string to another in the blink of an eye. Today his compositions are played by many violinists across the world. His Caprice No.24 in A minor: Tema con Variazoni (Quasi Presto) and La Campanella are considered among his most renowned compositions. On the other hand, Le Streghe, The Carnival of Venice and Nel cor piu non mi sento are some of his famous variations.
Paganini has been an inspiration not only to the violinists but also to countless acclaimed composers such as Ivry Gitlis, Franz Liszt, Robert Schumann, George Rochberg, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Boris Bachler, Witold Lutoslawski, Johannes Brahms, Sergei Rachmaninioff etc. But among the people who inspired him were Pietro Locatelli and August Duranowski whose reflection can be easily seen in Paganini’s compositions and playing techniques. Some of these techniques existed earlier (in Pietro Locatelli’s 24 caprices called The art of new style- the enigmatic caprices) but were unfortunately slammed for being innovative and unorthodox. So in a way Paganini brought into the light what had been kept in darkness for years. Not only that, he also improvised them and made them his own.
