Cobra Records has this week announced the release of Dutch violinist Lisa Jacobs‘ new album: Paganini Caprices for Solo Violin.
The disc features Paganini’s 24 Caprices for Solo Violin Op. 1.
“Somehow no violinist can escape them … a beautiful, infamous cycle of 24 works for violin solo with an enormous arsenal of technical delights …” Lisa has told The Violin Channel.
“For me, this music is not just about technique and speed … this cycle is like a reflection of life … love, joy, sorrow, drama, despair, loneliness, pain and even death … it is all present in the music …” she has said.
“The result of my imagination is this recording …. in which I have searched for the extremes in my artistic freedom … in speed but also stillness and timbre … combined with Paganini’s greatest love: the opera … with all its drama and its pure lyricism.”
