Tartini’s “Devil’s Trill” Sonata and a selection of Paganini’s 24 Caprices – highlights of the virtuoso violin literature that challenge the soloist’s technical skills to the utmost – stand side by side with equally demanding contemporary works by Berio and Sciarrino in Michael Barenboim’s solo recital. With this program, the violinist masterfully traces 250 years of Italian violin music.
