24 Dutch capriccio's by Janine Jansen and Joris van Rijn

March 28, 2009 at 9:07 AM

Here something else than the 24 capriccio's of Paganini. 24 Capriccio's for soloviolin form the Netherlands of the Dutch composer Chiel Meijering with shouting and catsound. Janine Jansen in 1999. Much more interesting than Tsjaikovsky but commercial less interesting perhaps, although this would be an original encore  and more original than a Paganini capriccio or Bach sonate or partita as encore.

Wow... That's amazing virtuosity.

I'm quite surprised that pieces like this aren't more famous and loved by the public...What a shame.

Thanks for sharing yet another undiscovered secret, Bram!
