24 Caprices for Solo Violin, Op. 1

The 24 Caprices for Solo Violin, Op. 1 are a series of 24 pieces by the Genoese composer Niccolò Paganini. Composed over a period of 15 years, between 1802 and 1817, the Caprices were published in 1819 and have since earned a prominent place among the most challenging pages in the violin repertoire. Paganini's masterpieces, especially Caprice No. 24, serve as a true demonstrative study of the instrument's technical difficulties. But the composer goes beyond merely cataloging the best-known subtleties! The 24 Caprices can be seen as a study of new and innovative techniques, such as left-hand pizzicato, wide intervals, the use of quadruple stops, and many other marvels...
