Description

The composition of 24 Caprices for the solo instrument have constituted a point of arrival for many a composer since the time of Locatelli and Paganini. Almost each relevant instrument of the orchestra has received its collection of Caprices, just think of Pierre Rode, Lvov Aleksey or Henry Marteau for the violin, Alfredo Carlo Piatti for the cello, Theobald Boehem and Philip Seydler for the flute, Marco Aurelio Zani de Ferranti for the guitar – the list could go on. The present collection of 24 Caprices shuns academicism and educational intent. Instead, Nino Cotone explores the potential of his instrument and its technical limitations based on over 200 years of violin literature, providing a fascinating and personal interpretation.
