Violin virtuoso Michael Rabin performs Paganini's Caprices for unaccompanied violin. Beautifully Packaged 180 Gram Vinyl 2LP Box Set with 4-Page Insert!

Violin virtuoso Michael Rabin performs Paganini's Caprices for unaccompanied violin.

An absolutely stunning vintage box set featuring the great Michael Rabin on solo violin. This is a classic performance by one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century.

When Michael Rabin made his official concert debut at Carnegie Hall in 1950, at the age of 14, conductor Dimitri Mitropolous said of him: "He is really the genius violinist of tomorrow, equipped with all that is necessary to be a great artist and to give great thrills to the musical world. He is a blessed boy and already completely devoted to his mission."

Rabin went on to become hailed by critics and audiences for his brilliant performances and became a major American artist before his premature death at the age of 35.

Although Paganini came into the world almost a generation too soon to be a genuine Romantic, he stands as one of the great and fascinating Romantic figures because of the extraordinary impression he made upon the younger generation of artists, as well as on a vast public. His violin-playing was of a kind that had never before been witnessed; and, besides, he presented a physical image so strange as to seem almost unearthly, though to some he seemed comic. He was tall, gaunt, even skeleton-like; he wore his long black hair as a frame around his pale, narrow face; his manner on the platform was austere. It was popularly believed that he had won his astounding virtuosity through a pact with the devil himself, and many thought that he was the very image of the fiend.

Coming from a musical family, his mother a Juilliard-trained pianist and his father a violinist in the New York Philharmonic, Rabin began to learn the violin at age seven. After a lesson with Jascha Heifetz, he began studying with Ivan Galamian who said he had 'no weaknesses, never'.

To stretch himself, Paganini often wrote pieces even he couldn't play and then spent months mastering them. Few violinists dare to play Paganini, and even fewer seem willing to risk recording him. The most acclaimed set of Paganini's Caprices is that which is performed by Michael Rabin.
