It is practically impossible to speak of the violin without mentioning Paganini. He represented a veritable milestone in the history of the instrument, in that what came before him is without doubt different from what came after him. Paganini was also a composer, yet the public at large has long had only a partial knowledge of his works: several of his manuscripts belonged to a private collector who prevented scholars and publishers from having access to them, while existing editions of the published works were often unreliable and misleading. When Paganini’s manuscripts returned to Italy in 1970, things finally changed, and Dynamic can now offer, for the first time in a single 40-CD box set, all of Paganini's works that are currently known and available. The endeavour of recording and publishing them all on CD has been considerable and has required several years' commitment, but now anyone wanting to know the true Paganini can find in this release the legacy of a man and a composer whose performances and compositions represented a crucial turning point in the history of music, and not just for the violin.
