First published in 1820, the 24th of the 24 Caprices for solo violin by Niccolò Paganini has long inspired composers as diverse as Brahms, Szymanowski and Andrew Lloyd Webber to pen their own variations on it. Pianist Stephen Hough joins the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and conductor Darrell Ang in a unique concert performance which sets the most famous of these variations - Rachmaninov's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini – against the lesser-known but equally dazzling and humorously energetic Paganini Variations by Witold Lutoslawski.
