About

Niccolò Paganini, the man and composer, has been a figure of inspiration and speculation for many musicians after him. His superhuman violin technique was believed to be bought from the devil. His 24 Capriccii for violin solo are still today barely playable.

Marieke Schneemann has been fascinated by the Capriccii for a long time. It was, however, the encounter with a historical 1850 Lot flute that inspired her to transcribe the violin works for solo flute, an even more daunting and challenging task. She used the special colours and timbres of this instrument to create the same thrilling effects as on the violin. The result is revelatory, the presentation of a complete new work of art!

Marieke Schneemann was educated in the pioneering period of the Authentic Music Practice. She was solo flautist in the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra under Gergiev, a member of the famous Dutch Wind Ensemble and an active player of chamber music in various ensembles.
