Paganini’s success as a violin virtuoso was naturally only partly based on the fantastical, mysterious and demonic atmosphere that surrounded him. What his professional admirers captivated most of all was his unparalleled playing technique. The best impression of his musical and technical accomplishment can be gained from his most talked about work, the 24 Caprices, op.1 (1817), which were modelled on the similarly named pieces by Pietro Locatelli (1733). To this day the 24 Caprices are still considered the bible of violin technique.

Ning Feng has recorded Paganini’s Caprices on a young instrument: 2017 Samuel Zygmuntowicz.

Ning Feng won First Prize in the International Violin Competition Premio Paganini in Genoa, 2006

“Most other players sound decidedly effortful by comparison.” – BBC Music Magazine

“a wonderful player with a creamy, easy tone and an emotional honesty”

“His silvery tonal purity, immaculate intonation and gently beguiling musicality have a way of making most other players sound decidedly effortful by comparison.” – BBC Music Magazine
