"Els 24 Capricis de Niccolo Paganini"

"Paganini's (1782-1840) Caprices are 24 works for soloist violin of an extremely difficulty technique. It was said that, to perform them, Paganini had made a deal with the Devil, and besides, he could play them because he had 6 fingers in each hand.

When he died, just in case, the Church didn't accept him in a catholic cemetery and the corpse remained in a basement, and after some time he was be buried in Parma's cemetery, under the commands of the Parma's duchess herself.

Ala Voronkova doesn't have 6 fingers in her hands, which are little, and the Devil it is not there anymore.

The one who is there is an excellent violonist with a model technique for performing Paganini and an extraordinary courage for offering to us the 24 caprices by Paganini in just one concert."
