Paganini: 24 Caprices, Op. 1
Label: RCA Red Seal
Released: August 9, 2010

Mayuko Kamio won the Gold Medal in the 2007 Thirteenth International Tchaikovsky Competition, and she plays a 1727 Stradivarius once owned by Joseph Joachim. In the US, Kamio worked with Dorothy DeLay. Kamio brings her considerable prowess to bear on these pillars of the violin repertory - composed 1802-1817 and published in 1820 as Opus 1 - which make every sort of technical demand whilst maintaining the arioso singing line Paganini admired in Rossini. Thus, Paganini fashioned a new rhetoric for the virtuoso Romantic violin whose musical repercussions would translate to the keyboard artistry of Chopin, Liszt, Schumann, and Brahms.
