NICOLÒ PAGANINI (1782-1840): Guitar Sonatas Nos. 1-37.
Catalogue Number: 11J042
Reference: CDS 550/1-2
Description: Lasting between two-and-a-half and five-and-a-half minutes, these mostly two-movement (minuet-fast) sonatas date from the early part of the first decade of the 19th century. Although youthful, they still show Paganini's interest in proposing and solving technical problems and are more melodically inventive and original than the occasional guitar pieces which also date from this period. 2 CDs. Guido Fichtner (guitar).
