Composed by Nicolo Paganini (1782-1840). Edited by Schumacher. Sheet Music. Published by Zimmermann (PE.ZM31680).

Item Number: PE.ZM31680

In all movements, which are quite extended at times, the violin is leading the ensemble virtuoso whereas the other parts share the accompaniment. This composition requires an excellent violin player- what else would you expect from Paganini? The edition issued by Kurt Schumacher is the first practical one of the quartet which so far had only been available as a facsimile edition. The issue in hand was carefully prepared and edited according to the original manuscripts from Rome.
