PAGANINI: Concerto No. 1 in D, Op. 6 (2 CD set) by Nicolo Paganini (1782-1840). For violin. Instrumental Solo Part and 2 CDs. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3175).
The grand old man of the violin, Nicolo Paganini, did more for the instrument and the nascent Romantic concerto form than any other composer-performer in history. And this original version of his First Concerto is nothing short of dazzling. It showcases the instrument to the maximum, and this MMO edition offers you a stunning orchestral backdrop for your own pyrotechnics! This deluxe 2CD set includes a slow-tempo practice version to help you as you learn this masterwork.
Includes a newly-engraved edition of the concerto on high-quality ivory paper, edited complete with performance notes by Mr. Hossen; and a digital stereo compact disc featuring a complete performance of the concerto with orchestra and soloist; then a second performance minus you, the soloist; and a second compact disc containing a -20% reduced-tempo version of the accompaniment for practice purposes. The concerto is voluminously indexed for your practice and performance convenience.
