  1. Last year, I was in my friend's car when I heard this amazing concerto. It made me debate over whether I wanted to learn the violin. The yesterday, I saw a CD at Borders: Michael Rabin/ Paganini:24 Caprices Op.1 When I listened to the CD, I found myself spellbound. It was amazing. So, I have decided to take on the violin. But I am just curious, how many years of hard work would it take before I get to play my dream Caprices? 3 years? 5 years? Are the Paganini C's really, really difficult? Are they harder than the Tchovsky Violin Concerto? Harder than the bach S and Ps? How much would they rate of out 20? My favorite out of the 24, are numbers 13, 1, 24, 20, and 6. Which are the hardest and easiest out of the 24? (Btw, the concerto I heard in the car was the Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto. I have heard rumors that it is the equivalent of the tch. concerto. Is it true?) I know that was a lot of questions. I would be really glad if you could take the time to answer all of them. Thanks.

    I know that this is a opinion, and that it's different for everyone depending on what types of strings they use, instrument, bow, etc. etc. I use dominant strings with a gold label E. What rosin do you think would work best?
  3. There's a much better way to obtain this piece without going to China! You can order it directly from Johnson. http://johnsonstrings.com/catalog/index.htm
