“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 give guidelines to millions of violinists. There are general rules and many details which could be 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.”


Paganini is considered the father of the modern violin technique, which he enriched with fundamental innovations.

From his Paganini performance in March 2018:


“Titanic and noble Paganini of Berman: memorable interpretation of the 24 Capricci”

“The challenge was not only won, but the victory was also triumphant. Nothing shameless, arrogant or spectacular. On the contrary. Berman's Paganini is noble and elegant. Technically undeniable. Berman has paid much attention to the composition of each Caprice”
