Niccolo Paganini was utterly mysterious in that, his glorious ability with the violin was so magnificent as to be literally supernatural. He will always claim the mantle as the greatest and most revered violinist the world has ever known. Now two hundred years later a new violinist, Sarah Chang, has won the hearts and minds of a fascinated classical audience with performances that astonish and bring the magic of the great composers of the past alive once more. In this great recording of Paganini's Violin Concerto No. 1, Sarah Chang has achieved another milestone in her long string of recording masterpieces. Her command of the rhythmics, harmonics, and melody is supreme. Her speed and precision are miraculous. Now 19, the Korean-American Chang made this recording at 13, in 1994. If ever there was a human being who could reach the heights that Paganini once inhabited, it is this young lady. Just as we worship Paganini as an immortal legend of the past, we can now admire and love Miss Chang, an immortal artist, a living legend, living among us today.
