Shlomo Mintz plays Paganini

One of the greatest ever violinists, Niccolò Paganini, died on 27 May 1840 aged 57. Here's Shlomo Mintz performing the cadenza in Paganini's Violin Concerto no.1 at a 1997 concert with the Limburg Symphony Orchestra conducted by Yoel Levi. Mintz is playing Paganini's own violin, the 1743 'Cannone' Guarneri 'del Gesù'.

Last year, as Shlomo Mintz celebrated 50 years of performing on stage, The Strad asked him what he would tell his younger self. Read his response here.
