Paganini Caprice No. 9 for Cello

Edited by Valter Dešpalj

Title: Caprice No. 9
Composer: Niccolò Paganini
Instrument: Violoncello
Edited By: Valter Dešpalj
Instrumentation: Solo
Pages: 3

One of the most popular Paganini Caprices, this is an excellent study in double-stops, daring jumps and the ricochet stroke.  Aside from the transposition to G-Major from the original E-Major (following the tradition of Luigi Silva), changes to the original violin text are reduced to a minimum - only when the editor found it quite unavoidable.
