Some composers – Enescu, Schumann and Szymanowski among them – have had a go at adding piano accompaniments to Paganini’s 24 Capricci for solo violin, but the Ukrainian Myroslav Skoryk (b. 1938) is the first composer to go the whole hog and orchestrate all 24 of them. His orchestrations have turned Paganini’s virtuosic violin-writing into a succession of symphonic fireworks, often injecting a touch of humour along the way. This recording is released to mark Myroslav Skoryk’s 80th birthday. It is the first of a series of collaborations planned between Toccata Classics and the Lviv International Symphony Orchestra in Lviv, western Ukraine.
