About

Noted for his exquisite, beautiful playing and a technical wizardry carried off with disarming nonchalance, Salvatore Accardo is most readily associated with Paganini – though technical wizardry for its own sake holds little fascination for him: "Of course for young violinists it is always a challenge to be able to play the 24 Caprices, but as I got older I understood that what was important in his music was its almost operatic qualities."

All the cadenzas in Accardo's legendary Paganini cycle for Deutsche Grammophon are his his own except in the case of Concerto No.1 for which he uses that by Sauret. As is well-known, the composer never set down his own, and at rehearsals would always lower his violin with the words “Et cetera, messieurs.” Accardo's instrument is a Stradivarius dating from 1717.
