Paganini Caprices arranged for String Quartet



Why arrange music specifically written to explore the capabilities of a single violin for a string quartet? Party for the fun of the challenge, partly to make explicit the implicit harmonies and counterpoints contained within the writing and partly to aid the listener to the wood despite the trees. William Zinn is well known for a host of brilliant arrangements reduces the risk of this performance being a solo high wire act. It is no longer about a single performer showing off, it is about the notes and the music that lies between them.
