On this release, violinist Salvatore Accardo performs Paganini's "24 Capricci Op. 1." 

The 24 Caprices for Solo Violin, Op. 1, were written by Nicolò Paganini between 1802 and 1817 and published in 1819. The caprices are in the form of études, with each number studying individual skills (double stopped trills, extremely fast switching of positions and strings, etc). 

When Paganini released his caprices, he dedicated them "to the Artists" rather than to a specific person. Unlike many earlier and later sets of 24 pieces, there was no intention to write these caprices in 24 different keys.

Salvatore Accardo - violin. Recordings from 17 to 19 February 2002 Palazzo Affaitati in Cremona, Italy

Fans of Italian luxury label Fone know certainly the Italian violin virtuoso Salvatore Accardo, who is one of the figureheads of the label for years. Now Accardo ventures together with label boss and engineer Giulio Cesare Ricci to the absolute master exam for every violinist Nicolo Paganini Opus 1, the 24 Capricci for solo violin. The 24 small pieces belong to the most virtuosic and technically demanding repertoire that was ever composed for this instrument.

Accardo copes on his Stradivarius not only brilliantly all the technical finesse of the work (after all, he made ​​his debut in the concert already with 13 years with this opus), but also impressed by a vocal and lyrical quality with which the Capricci from mere bravura also to musically entertaining and are moving experience. Equally spotlessly copes recording head Ricci testing: the sensitive sound of the historical instruments (specifically: both instruments, since Accardo plays on two different Stradivarius violins) and the splendid acoustics of the Palazzo Affaitati in Cremona, he captures with a lot of warmth and attention to detail - never sounds lonely instrument here is thin, always comes the whole sonority to bear, the Paganini and Accardo elicit the violin. Masterfully!

 story of fonè
In the context of classical and jazz music market, fonè proposes three decades of recordings using advanced techniques, aimed at the recovery of the original musical atmospheres.
Each new recording is the result of a passionate encounter between art and the art of execution and aims to recreate and reproduce the same spirit with which the works of the past have been performed. One basic feature that makes the difference between fonè and others, is the recording of musical works in natural places and original, constant production that leads to choose from time to time historically more space? Suitable for: church, theater, villa, living room ...
All this is done by retrieving a simple incision that does not do violence to the music: all the equipment is in high definition. Using pairs of valves Neumann microphones in the years 1947 and 1949 (U47, U48 and M49) using techniques very natural timbre bimicrofoniche field effect. These microphones have an important story: they are the microphones used to record the Beatles at Abbey Road Studio and RCA for the "Living Stereo."
No use is made of electronic manipulation of the signal, nor any artificial correction that if they make a sound easier to carve, it is true that distort so unacceptable. With this method you get to transfer the music information on the standard analog for the production of virgin vinyl 180g &  200g
fonè uses for the standard analog Nagra 4S, Studer C37 and J37 and Ampex ATR 102, the standard for digital, in collaboration with Philips the DSD (Direct Stream Digital) technology that has opened the doors to the SACD. For all subsequent stages of processing and control, in which it must be a playback of the sound reproduction systems are used very sophisticated.
After the pressing demands of the enthusiast market and after a long series of investigations to ensure the best possible support, the virgin vinyl 180/200 grams, fonè now makes available its most prestigious titles in the LP format. 
strong opposition to current trends in the multinational market, tending to offer a product that is increasingly homogenized and devoid of content. 
Implementation is of the highest quality and is dedicated to those who appreciate the pursuit of perfection in the field of sound reproduction, to collectors, to the true connoisseur and expert of things beautiful.
