Variations on One String ('Variazioni di Bravura') on a Theme from 'Moses' by Rossini, for Cello and Piano by Niccolo Paganini

Published by International Edition. Edited by Pierre Fournier

Niccolo Paganini (1782-1840) was the most celebrated virtuoso of the violin of the nineteenth century, if not the entirety of classical music. His works represent a great leap forward for violin technique, showing with glittering pyrotechnics the wide range of capability of the instrument and the modern violinist. He kept his secrets closely guarded and engaged in friendly rivalries with other virtuosos of his time, like Heinrich Wilhelm Ernst.

Paganini was known for his dramatic theatricality as well as his virtuosity. A favorite trick of his was to break the top three strings of his violin during a concert, leaving only the G--then, he would play an encore piece on the remaining string, of which his Variations on the G String on Rossini's ''Moses'' (referring to the operatic master's "Moses in Egypt'') was the most famous. This remains one of his most popular and dazzling showpieces, arranged here for cello and piano and edited by Pierre Fournier. For advance players. Includes solo and piano parts.
