Robortom feat. Au Revoir Simone - 'Paganini Rocks'
Robortom feat. Au Revoir Simone - 'Paganini Rocks' In a move set to infuriate Middle England and send Classic FM's phonelines into meltdown, Rob da Bank, Tom Middleton, and Au Revoir Simone have reworked Paganini's '24th Caprice' into 'Paganini Rocks' - a club anthem 200 years in the making. iTunes: itunes.apple.com Video directed by Graham Baclagon: kokakolapop.com In the eyes of most classical music buffs mixing classical and dance music is about the most sacrilegious thing you can do. But while Robortom's 'Paganini Rocks' will undoubtedly rankle the classical world, it's the latest in a long line of reinterpretations of Paganini's original composition. Since 1819, his '24th Caprice' has been reworked by a long and illustrious list of composers from Chopin, Liszt, and Schumann, to Rachmaninoff and Lloyd- Webber. It was also used as the theme tune for the South Bank Show. In 2009, it was the turn of British composer, Tom Hodge (featured in recent ad campaigns for Audi and Guiness). Hodge's interpretation caught the ears of Rob and Tom, who enlisted the vocal talents of Au Revoir Simone to complete their own version. 'Paganini Rocks' is the title music to the 2010 Orange RockCorps show, and is set to appear in CSI New York in October, making Paganini's theme one of the most 'synced' pieces of all time. Rob da Bank is Radio 1's leftfield extraordinaire (with 2 shows), daddy to the UK's finest festival, Bestival and its younger upstart, Camp Bestival, and one half of Lazyboy (with Mr Dan). He's also head honcho at Sunday ...

Niccolò Paganini - Caprice No. 24 in A minor ( Classical Guitar )
Niccolò Paganini - Caprice No. 24 in A minor ( Classical Guitar ) Caprice No. 24 in A minor is the final caprice of Niccolò Paganini's 24 Caprices, and a famous work for solo violin. The work, in the key of A minor, consists of a theme, 11 variations, and a finale. It is widely considered one of the most difficult pieces ever written for the solo violin. It requires many highly advanced techniques such as parallel octaves and rapid shifting covering many intervals, extremely fast scales and arpeggios including minor scales in thirds and tenths, left hand pizzicato, high positions, and quick string crossing. As a result, most violinists even after studying for many years still lack the technique required for such a demanding piece. Niccolò Paganini (27 October 1782 -- 27 May 1840) was an Italian violinist, violist, guitarist, and composer. He was one of the most celebrated violin virtuosi of his time, and left his mark as one of the pillars of modern violin technique. His Caprice No. 24 in A minor, Op. 1, is among the best known of his compositions, and has served as an inspiration for many prominent composers. Italiano: Niccolò Paganini, o Nicolò (Genova, 27 ottobre 1782 -- Nizza, 27 maggio 1840), è stato un violinista, compositore e chitarrista italiano. Continuatore della scuola italiana di Pietro Antonio Locatelli e di Gaetano Pugnani, è considerato uno fra i maggiori violinisti dell'Ottocento, sia per la padronanza dello strumento, sia per le innovazioni apportate in particolare allo staccato e al pizzicato. La sua attività di ...
