Cliburn Masterpiece: BRAHMS – Variations on a Theme by Paganini, op. 35

Host Buddy Bray interviews famed violinist James Ehnes about Paganini and why composers are drawn to this incredible figure in music history. We’ll also discuss the meaning of virtuosity and how Paganini’s theme translates from violin to piano with Cliburn Gold Medalist Alexander Kobrin, followed by his complete performance of the work from the Preliminary Round of the 2005 Cliburn Competition.
