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.
