Maria Elena Paganini (Host)
Maria Elena Paganini honors her relative NICCOLO PAGANINI who was the most famous virtuoso violinist in the history of music. He even received the nickname of "the violinist of the devil" for his outstanding skills on stage performance.
For the first time a relative of this great violinist performs a tribute in his honor in the most illustrious concert hall in the world, at Carnegie Hall. It will take place at the jewel box of the theatre, elegant, intimate, and timeless, at the Weill Recital Hall, which has a capacity for 268 people.
On October 30th in the New York autumn at 8 pm will be the most anticipated concert for lovers of the violin in general and for the famous creations of Niccolo Paganini in particular.
His compositions of diverse works, violin concertos, sonatas for violin or guitar and violin and the 24 caprices in which the virtuosity is taken to the maximum will be performed by 5 violinists accompanied by the piano. The difficulty of the compositions will be a great challenge to these artists, although being professionals, must carry the emotion and the internal fire that Paganini transmitted. No doubt the selection of pieces will be very attractive to the public.
-This will be the first stage of a tour that foresees visiting cities on different continents in the year 2020 always under the name "Paganini Honors Paganini"
