About Niccolò Paganini
Niccolò Paganini was an Italian violinist and composer who became the most acknowledged amongst his contemporaries at the time. He also played the viola and guitar.
After finding fame in various cities in his native Italy, he went on international tours throughout Europe in the late 1820s and early 1830s.
His most popular compositions include the “24 Caprices for Solo Violin”, which he wrote between 1802 and 1817.
Before he picked up the violin, he learnt to play the mandolin from his father, Antonio Paganini. His mother’s name was Teresa Bocciardo. He had five siblings.
Paganini was a famed womaniser but he had a son, Achille Ciro Alessandro, from his only serious relationship with Antonia Bianchi, a singer he performed with at concerts within Italy.
“Rhapsody on a Theme” by Rachmaninoff and Brahms’ “Variations on a Theme of Paganini” were based on his “Caprice No. 24”.
He died from internal haemorrhaging on 27 May 1840.
