Paganini-Variations op. posth.


Stretching across the centuries and transcending styles, the transcriptions written by Ysaÿe and Kreisler in homage to Paganini, their forebear, forge a link among these three illustrious violinist/composers. The transcription genre originated with Paganini, who borrowed themes from Mozart and Rossini operas as starting points for extraordinarily virtuosic variations on the violin. 'Di tanti palpiti', based on an aria from 'Tancredi' of the same name, is part of a group of works that feature dizzyingly acrobatic variations on highly fashionable themes. It should therefore come as no surprise that Paganini’s own themes have also been subjected to the same treatment! Laurent Korcia recounts that as a child it was exactly this sort of musical bonbon that made him fall in love with the violin. In fact, at the age of 18 he won the Paganini competition which he played on one of Paganini’s violins, the ‘Canone’ Guarnerus. Today, this generous, free violinist has embarked on a journey to discover the magical Kreisler, scaling the dizzying heights that lead to Paganini and to some of the most bewitching spells that a violin can weave.

“This is a virtuoso album par excellence...It's an intelligent look at the virtuoso tradition that also stakes a major claim to being an integral part of it. Korcia plays with a reckless flamboyance and a sweetness of tone that are utterly beguiling and leave you craving more” The Guardian, 13th February 2014 *****

“Every notes sparkles with an ear-tweaking clarity and larger-than-life tonal lustre reminiscent of Pinchas Zukerman at his early-1970s prime...Finest of all is a gripping performance of Ysaye's 15 wrist-crippling variations on Paganini's famous Caprice No. 24, a cornucopia of fiendish technical ingenuity that Korcia throws off with scintillating flair and passion.” BBC Music Magazine, July 2014 *****

Philippe Quint (violin) & Dmitriy Cogan (piano)

Although temperamentally quite different and born a century apart, both Nicolò 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.

“Philippe Quint is a wonderfully accomplished soloist.” Gramophone

“Philippe Quint possesses the ideal combination of tonal allure, technical finesse and expressive intensity to bring these Paganini adaptations pulsatingly to life...[his] flying spiccato, left-hand agility and forced/natural harmonics throughout the finger-breaking Tancredi Variations are truly phenomenal.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2010 ****

“Quint is an excellent Paganini player - his technique is up to the mark, with alluring tone quality and expressive, stylish playing of the quasi-operatic cantabile music.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2010

“Philippe Quint opts for the arrangements by Kreisler, a sensational performer himself, who added piano parts and polished the pieces into recital encores....The Kreisler arrangements may be cloying bonbons but they have a period charm” The Observer, 22nd August 2010
