Concerto No. 1 in D Major, Op.6 by Niccolo Paganini

Published by International Edition. Edited by Carl Flesch.

Niccolo Paganini (1782-1840) was the most celebrated virtuoso of the violin of the nineteenth century, if not the entirety of classical music. His works represent a great leap forward for violin technique, showing with glittering pyrotechnics the wide range of capability of the instrument and the modern violinist. He kept his secrets closely guarded and engaged in friendly rivalries with other virtuosos of his time, like Heinrich Wilhelm Ernst.

Paganini's Violin Concerto No. 1 in D Major, Op.6 was his first entry in the genre and represents a significant milestone as a performer and composer of virtuosic violin music. It was originally written in E-flat Major with the intention of the soloist tuning their violin up a semitone, so as to make the soloist sound more brilliant against a slightly muted orchestra. In years since it has been commonly performed in the more practical and popular arrangement to D Major. Edited by Carl Flesch, with cadenzas by Flesch and Emile Sauret. For advanced players.
