About

For the first time on CD: the complete 24 Capricci for violin solo by Locatelli!

This issue might be considered as an 'afterbirth' of the complete Locatelli Edition on Brilliant Classics. The Capricci are written down cadenzas as featured in the violin concertos Op.3 (L’Arte del Violino). They are highly virtuosic, demanding the greatest technical skills from the performer (not for nothing Locatelli was called a 'devil' performing these works!). The Capricci are so substantial that they can stand on their own. Eighty years later that other 'violin devil', Nicolo Paganini, would write Capricci as well, thus establishing a new musical form.

Russian violinist Igor Ruhadze received a solid training in Moscow, before specialising in Historically Informed Performance Practice, and is fully equipped to tackle these dazzling works, “breathtakingly performed” as the Gramophone writes.
