Although Paganini is mainly regarded as a super virtuoso on the violin (achieving a pop star status in his time) and composer for his instrument of concertos of the highest difficulty, he composed a substantial oeuvre of chamber music for a diversity of unusual instruments.

This CD presents a selection of works composed for the viola (the chaste sister of the sexy violin) and the guitar, a serious classical instrument in his time. These are wonderful intimate and deliciously melodic works, full of charm and Italian sunshine.

These are excellent performances by violist Simone Gramaglia, a seasoned soloist and violist of the famous Quartetto di Cremona, and guitarist Luigi Attademo, who has already recorded extensively for Brilliant Classics to great critical acclaim, notably the complete solo guitar works by Paganini (BC94348): “one of the best performances I’ve ever heard” (Guitar Foundation).
