I heard the most amazing recording of the Paganini caprices the other day. I've never written here before, just enjoyed reading all the posts. But I felt I had to tell you about this.
Here's what happened:
I'm in Sweden visiting my great aunt. The other night I went to a concert with the Royal Philharmonic. It was great show! After the concert I met some really nice people from the orchestra. They were all talking about a Swedish violinist who recorded all the caprices by Paganini this year. They wondered if I've heard of him. Which I had not! I wrote his name down and checked it out later. I was completely knocked of my feet! I have never heard someone play the caprices that clear and with such beauty. And the sound was incredible!
I don't think the recording is out yet, but you can listen to some caprices at the site. His name in Jan Stigmer and the address is www.janstigmer.com.
Check it out!
