      Paganini, arr Piccinini: Caprice in A minor, Op 1 No 24 (5:36)

      Marina Piccinini, flute

      Flutist Marina Piccinini relishes tradition with a twist. Having recorded Bach’s Flute Sonatas with the Brasil Guitar Duo, she astounds again with astonishing virtuosity in her own arrangements of Paganini’s notoriously difficult Op 1 Violin Caprices. Piccinini matches Paganini’s vision and independence of spirit, explaining, “I was drawn to transcribe and record all the Caprices as a challenge and stimulus for my own development. What I discovered and fell in love with was a musical voice that demanded a far greater emotional expression through technical perfection of phrasing, flexibility of embouchure, depth of sound, breath control, digital dexterity and precise articulation.”
