The Devil's Violinist - Paganini Caprices

March 7, 2021at7:00PM (UTC)

Join Kevin Zhu and Jan Vogler as they explore the hidden mysteries of Niccolò Paganini's legendary 24 Caprices through a pairing of performance and conversation. Paganini transcended all barriers to convert the violin into a tool of radical possibility, earning him the nickname of the 'Devil's Violinist'. This concert marks a key step in Kevin's journey to perform the complete set of 24 Caprices live in concert, an undertaking so formidable that only a few violinists in history have ever dared to attempt it.

Show streams live on 3/07, available for Video on Demand 48 hours after the show.
