Niccolò Paganini  (1782-1840)
Last updated: 24.01.20
According to The New Penguin Dictionary of Music, Niccolò Paganini was an Italian violinist, called by Schumann "the turning-point of virtuosity"; enormously successful - though, with the subsequent advance in the general level of performers' skill, his feats are no longer regarded as freakishly difficult. Was also guitarist (wrote 3 string quartets with guitar part) and viola player: he commissioned, but never played, Berlioz's "Harald in Italy". Compositions include at least 6 violin concertos (the composer referred to 8) of which apparently only four survive in full orchestral score. his music has a certain intense, "demonic" quality - emphasised in his lifetime of his being inspired by the Devil, etc. Died in Nice.
