Paganini Caprices Unlocked
For iClassical Academy, Pavel Berman recorded exclusively 24 lessons and performances of the most challenging repertoire for young violinists: Paganini's 24 Caprices.
“My experience in teaching and performing Paganini brings me to the idea that, although every player has its features, there are many elements which are valid for us all. That’s why I recorded this series, which could be a guideline to millions of violinists. There are general rules and many details which are crucial to overcoming difficulties, and a list of suggestions about how to study and practice that could make the difference for the career of a performer, exactly as it was for me.”
