About

The second of three boxes focused on one of the greatest virtuoso violinists of the 20th century, Ruggiero Ricci. This 4-CD set contains showpieces, including works by Bach, Ysa˙e, Paganini, Stravinsky and many more. This project is realised under the auspices of Mme Julia Ricci, Ruggiero’s wife.

Ricci followed the tradition of Váša Příhoda, the Czech virtuoso, who performed Paganini as a central part of his repertory (Ricci gave the US premieres of both the 4th and 6th Violin Concertos). Giving so much attention to the works of the Genoese composer, as he later said, he learned much of the violin-technique from Paganini’s works. Mainly for this reason, Ricci was often associated with Paganini, but during his life he was firmly opposed to any categorization, and indeed he was used to say: “A specialist is somebody who plays all the other types of music worse”. This 4-CD set presents live and studio recordings, ranging from 1946 to 1970, including some rarities, never recorded commercially.
