In this collection, celebrated compositions by Paganini have been adapted and simplified in such a way that they are playable for practically every violinist. Tours de force such as pizzicato in the left hand, ricochet and harmonics are retained in a simplified form, so the pieces still sound spectacular and are very violinistic. A piano accompaniment is provided for these concert pieces and caprices both in printed form and on the CD. The CD also includes beautifully performed demo versions of the works. Enter the world of Paganini.
