Although temperamentally quite different and born a century apart, both Nicolo Paganini and Fritz Kreisler enjoyed stellar careers as violin virtuosos, touring widely and thrilling audiences with their astonishing virtuosity and innate showmanship. Kreisler's arrangements of Paganini's music, including two large-scale sets of variations based on themes from Rossini operas, the famous La Campanella and several Caprices, brought these charming and demanding pieces to an enthusiastic public. Acclaimed Russian-born, American-based violinist Philippe Quint follows the path of his illustrious forebears with equal measures of stunning technique and immense sensitivity.
