About

From his first spectacular performance the eleven-year-old violin prodigy Niccolò Paganini took Italy and the rest of Europe by storm. His success as a virtuoso was due both to his mysterious, demonic aura and to his unsurpassed technique, with countless double stops, flageolets, pizzicatos, and his habit of playing only on the G string. Many considered him to be the best violinist of their age. We are proud to have violinist Ning Feng, hailed for his great lyricism, innate musicality and stunning virtuosity and blessed with an impeccable technique and a silken tone, perform Paganini’s viruosic Violin Concerto in D major.

Another child prodigy of that time was Henri Vieuxtemps, who enjoyed an outstanding career as a violinist from the age of six, studying in Vienna and Paris and touring Europe, Russia and the USA. The Concerto no.4 in D minor was his own favourite concerto.

‘Apasionado or purely virtuoso, these works deliver violinistic fireworks by the carload. (...) Ning Feng delivers all these demanding works with the fire, ice, and sugar, in different measures,that they require. His technique is beyond cavil, of course, but he also plays with a purity and sweetness of tone rare among the current crop of virtuosi. (...)’ – Audiophole Audition review of ‘Apasionado’ (CCS37916)
