Flautist Marina Piccinini relishes tradition with a twist. Having recorded J. S. Bach’s Flute Sonatas with the Brasil Guitar Duo – the first ever recording using this combination of instruments (AV 2196) – she astounds again with astonishing virtuosity in her own arrangements of Paganini’s devilishly difficult 24 Capricci. Piccinini matches Paganini’s vision and independence of spirit, explaining, “I was drawn to transcribe and record all the Caprices as a challenge and stimulus for my own development, a path towards pushing the envelope outside my personal comfort zone. What I discovered and fell in love with was a musical voice that demanded a far greater emotional expression through technical perfection of phrasing, flexibility of embouchure, depth of sound, breath control, digital dexterity and precise articulation.”
