"Pine brings an intriguing perspective to Paganini ... she’s also one of the more adventurous violinists around ..."
- The Washington Post

Billboard chart-topping violinist Rachel Barton Pine traverses Paganini’s groundbreaking 24 Caprices with virtuosic flair and, in equal measure, reverence for the bel canto style of the composer’s generation. Playing a Guarneri del Gesù violin from 1742, made by the same Cremona-based maker in the same year as Paganini’s own violin, Pine channels the composer’s technical wizardry as well as his love for beautiful melodies. Introduced to the Caprices at the age of six, Pine gave her first live performance of the complete set in a single concert while she was in her early 20s, a feat she has accomplished several times since. She fills out this double album with other pyrotechnical works by Paganini and concludes the set with one of her own pieces.

“Paganini’s Caprices have influenced all the great metal guitarists ... many of them are great classical fans themselves, so if there’s one (classical album) that metal heads are going to love, it would be this one."

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
