PAGANINI: 24 CAPRICES - Eliot Fisk

CHOOSE YOUR FILE FORMAT:
Any violinist who successfully plows through the Paganini Caprices deserves immediate admiration. A guitarist who transcribes these enduringly difficult pieces and plays them flawlessly defies belief. John Williams first dared to experiment with Paganini on the guitar; Eliot Fisk has followed his lead and appropriated the whole cycle of 24 Caprices. -- Alex Ross, The New York Times

Astounding! Even Paganini wouldn't have believed that it could be played on the guitar. An enormous accomplishment that will raise the level of guitar playing. Has to be heard to be believed.
-Ruggiero Ricci
