Australian Chamber Orchestra Presents Paganini/Tognetti
Dates: 10 Dec 2014
Address: Melbourne Recital Centre, 31 Sturt Street, Southbank, Victoria 3006
Phone: 02 8274 3800
At the Melbourne Recital Centre; Italian Showpieces written by some of the earliest violin virtuosos and high octane 20th-century string works.
Invoking the diabolical technical wizardry of Paganini, Tognetti performs numerous reworked Paganini caprices more devilishly difficult than the originals.
Schubert was utterly enraptured by Paganini's talent. The flashing scales of Schubert's Quartettsatz require breakneck virtuosity from the violins and it is a thrilling piece to play and experience live.
Hindemith's melody provides a touching moment of repose in this otherwise full-throttle concert.
