Paganini’s Incomparable Caprices

To this day, Paganini’s Twenty-Four Caprices represent the Mount Everest of violin technique. Violinist Sean Lee, in a rarely encountered feat of virtuosity, performs the entire cycle of Paganini’s caprices, with Music@Menlo debut pianist Peter Dugan offering the beautiful accompaniments composed by none other than Robert Schumann.
