Paganini’s success as a violin virtuoso was naturally only partly based on the fantastical, mysterious, and demonic atmosphere that surrounded him. What his professional admirers captivated most of all was his unparalleled playing technique. The best impression of his musical and technical accomplishment can be gained from his most talked-about work, the 24 Caprices opus 1 (1817), which were modelled on the similarly named pieces by Pietro Locatelli (1733). To this day the 24 Caprices are still considered the bible of violin technique. (…)

[from liner notes]

• + 1: Remarkable Caprice d’Adieu forms the conclusion of this album.

• Ning Feng won First Prize in the International Violin Competition Premio Paganini in Genoa, 2006.

• While being ‘in between Strads’ at the time, Ning Feng much enjoyed recording Paganini’s Caprices on his own very fresh sounding instrument: 2017 Samuel Zygmuntowicz.

• This recording stayed in DSD 256 throughout the entire process (no conversion to DXD, no mixing / EQ)
