A tale of Sauret vs Paganini playoff: The Violin Girl with Paganini concerto, Part 3

April 1, 2017, 5:53 AM · In this episode, continuing from her previous vlogs about the Paganini violin concerto, Leia tells a tale of a famous cadenza for the first movement of the Paganini violin concerto by none other than Émile Sauret. Sauret is a French violinist and composer who wrote over 100 violin pieces. He is most famous for his cadenza for the 1st movement of Paganini violin concerto.

In Leia's creative tale, Sauret time-travelled to a concert where Paganini was playing his own concerto and played his cadenza effectively resulted in a virtual playoff between Paganini and Sauret.
