Composed in 1934, this series of variations on one of Paganini’s themes was an instant hit. The 18th variation is a universally known melody to this day, being heard on film and television soundtracks, in recordings, and in concert halls everywhere. A many ways bridge between late 19th-century music and the modern age, it is a vital addition to every serious pianist’s repertoire. 

Includes an expansive, newly engraved 96-page music book with solo part and orchestral reduction, printed on high-quality ivory paper: and online audio containing the complete performance of the concerto in digital stereo: a digital stereo version of the orchestral accompaniment, minus the soloist: plus a special –25% slow-tempo version of the accompaniment for practice purposes.
