Biography

Niccolò Paganini, the demon of the violin

Niccolò Paganini was born with the violin, like Franz Liszt with the piano. A child prodigy in the truest sense of the term, his teachers, Rolla and Paer, admitted to having never taught him a thing. A life of adventure, romantic conquests, concerts and politics, Paganini was an incredible character.

Both angel and demon, he is an emblematic figure of Romanticism.
