Intermediate to Advanced Level.
The 24 “Caprices” by Paganini form a coherent group of works which
require the highest degree of technical expertise. Since their
publication in 1817 the “Caprices” have remained the defining milestone
of violin technique.
Bärenreiter’s scholarly-critical edition is
based on the autograph and early prints from various European
publishers. The original beaming and articulation have been maintained,
thereby setting this new edition apart from the many publications of the
last 200 years which incorporated changes and emendations by famous
violin virtuosos. In addition to the daunting “Caprices”, this is the
first time that the 24 “Contradanze Inglesi” for solo violin have been
published. These simple pieces are each 16 measures in length and
exploit various techniques, thus providing a wonderful addition to the
solo violin repertoire.
This edition offers a spacious layout with many
fold-out pages allowing plenty of room to add personal fingering and
bowing. A historical introduction in English and German discusses the
genesis of the works and traces their influence on violin virtuosos. A
source description and critical commentary round out this unique
