5.0 out of 5 stars Playing the devil out of the Devil's Violin June 11, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The title is apt--there are sometimes I'm glad I DON'T play violin! This album is AWESOME and TIRESOME at the same time. The agility of the artists and orchestra are truly astounding. Several of the tunes are familiar (Carmen Fantasy, Zigeunerwiesen, etc.), but many are real new treats for me. I recommend any of these for an alarm clock tone for your i-phone! It says something that listening to this album I lost all track of time. And that was just my first day with it. How enjoyable these tunes will be in the occasional shuffle! Thanks again, Amazon, nailed it, and at a price no one could refuse!

5.0 out of 5 stars Paganini is the best!! June 9, 2013
By dave
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
For anyone who loves Solo Violin, it doesn't get much better then Paganini. Great album. My favorite is Scherzo Tarantelle in G minor Op. 16. Good variety here and you'll probably recognize several of the more popular ones. For .99 cents what do you have to lose??

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavenly sounds from the devil's violin August 12, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Although we begin with Paganini, Tartini's Devil's trill is older and overlooked in this selection. And those who seek Charlie Daniels fiddling with the devil in Georgia must also look elsewhere.
This group of selections manages to gather many of the most furious passages from famous concertos, suites, and other works. You will find Spanish, Gypsy, great concerto movements and more.
Thankfully reviewers have helped you with composer information. For those who seek more, the names Sarasate and Fritz Kreisler must be highlighted.
Sarasate was a favorite soloist of our friend Sherlock Holmes. Holmes and Watson were delighted by his performance in London.
Kreisler, like Sarasate and Paganini both composed and enthralled from the stage. Since Kreisler lived during the recording era you may hear his own playing. Seek out the great violin concertos and smaller works by this fast-fingered trio--Pagannini,Sarasate,and Kreisler. But first, enjoy the thirty selections you have for inspiration.
