The point is to increase gradually the level of the understanding, cultivation and practice of musical art. This task falls particularly to the new Academy.

The name Niccolò Paganini is generally associated with a single instrument, the violin, whereas it is often forgotten that he was an excellent guitarist as well, and this latter instrument played an important part in his compositional work. In addition to violin pieces that largely defined his oeuvre, he also wrote over a hundred works for guitar, and the instrument appears in virtually all his chamber compositions. A good example, although just symbolically, of the closeness he felt for both instruments is that by the age of 12 he had already composed his first variation series for violin and guitar, and among his first published works together with the 24 Caprices there are also two violin-guitar sonatas. The diversity of the virtuoso Italian instrumentalist is represented at this concert by violinist László Nyári and guitarist Miklós Környei. Together with the Paganini works, the recital includes a homage to 20th century Italian composer Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, and caprices by guitarist-composer Luigi Legnani.

 

 

The concert is followed by CODA – which is an informal conversation with the performers.
