Mister Paganini

Laurent Korcia performs works by Kreisler, Albeniz, Isaÿe and Paganini


'Take three of the all-time great violinist-composers, bring to the boil, stir and leave to simmer and the result is pure musical dynamite … Finest of all is a gripping performance of Ysäye’s 15 wrist-crippling variations on Paganini’s famous Caprice No. 24, a cornucopia of fiendish technical ingenuity that Korcia throws off with scintillating flair and passion.' Julian Haylock
