Pablo de Sarasate (1844-1908) is one of the most important and
successful violin virtuosos of the second half of the 19th century. His compositions are mostly expressive bravura
pieces that display a high level of virtuosity.
(Capricho vasco) Op. 24 is influenced by the typical dotted
rhythm of the 'zortzico', a Basque dance in 5/8 meter. This edition is edited by Wolfgang Birtel and Friedemann Eichhorn. Fingerings and bowings are by Eichhorn.
