Mintz's recording of Paganini's Caprices is probably one of the best recordings if not the best. He is technically perfect and his sound has a wonderful quality. But the best thing for me in this recording is that unlike other violinists, who play those caprices just as studies, he makes a very musical interpretation of them, with his well-played dynamics. A "must have" recording for all Paganini fans.

I must agree with the last review. I have 6 recordings of the caprices and this ends up on top. Mintz plays in a very different way, unlike other violinists. Just hear the #24, because in other reccordings this one is always the same : It has the same duration(4:40), and its played like a study(specially the eight Var)

Mintz's interpretation is unique (He repeats the second part of every Variation). He plays it in a musical way.

this is really a "must have" for Paganini fans. I highly recomend this recording, forget about the other ones.

I just heard Mintz's Paganini Caprices for the first time, and I came immediately upstairs to my computer to write this review. I am amazed! I have heard a number of versions of these over the years, and I must say, none compare to this.

Those who reviewed Mintz's cd ahead of me said it better than I can. I just want to put an exclamation point on theirs. If you have any doubt at all, put it aside. Shlomo Mintz makes the 24 Paganini Caprices sing, and with absolutely astonishing technique. The beauty of his playing of the 24th Caprice is unsurpassed, in my opinion, including the many renditions of Rachmaninov's Rapture on this theme.

Sholomo Mintz has proved over the years, his astounding technique, fingering, tune and temperament have always been for him a special trademark. And so - as expected result - his sound is organic, expressively sincere and deeply engaging.

If I would have to pronounce myself by the four best sets of Paganini's caprices,
I would chose these ones: Michael Rabin, Salvatore Accardo and Ruggiero Ricci.

Don't miss it!

This recording is legendary. You simply cannot find a more realized version of this the 24 Caprices than this, barring perhaps the Perlman version. This recording is also special because of the production. You can hear the wood of his violin, you can feel the bow scraping across the strings, it really is magical.

I recommend this over any recording. This is the most integral recording of this work, no matter what wikipedia tells you.
