As he releases his new album of solo Italian violin repertoire, Michael writes for The Strad magazine all about Paganini’s great legacy as a composer and how his specific type of virtuosity inspires across the centuries.

Michael will perform Berg violin concerto with Moritz Gnann and the BBC Philharmonic. For more information: https://www.bbc.co.uk/events/evrbc8
