As for the piano part, you don't need it. It is literally two chords, repeated over and over. A major/E major (or E dominant seventh). If you can't figure out where the chord change happens, you may not want to be playing Paganini.

try here or here (look on the bottom under violin & piano) (both with piano).

December 15, 2006 at 02:11 PM · Thank you Mischa , I'll try to order it.
