OscarOVeterano1 More than 1 year ago
Paganini¿s Daemon ¿ Allegro Films In a very well written and carefully researched documentary/bio, Christopher Nupen explores the legendary life of Niccolo Paganini, arguably the first international musical superstar. Included with the gossip and commentary of his contemporaries are reviews (good and bad) from a variety of sources and a generous sampling of Paganini¿s music, ably performed by Gidon Kremer, John Williams and a Swiss/Italian orchestra and chorus. Alternately dishy and academic, this program was part of a series of composer documentaries (others include Schubert and Tchaikovsky) undertaken by Mr. Nupen; if the others are anywhere nearly as well done as ¿Paganini¿s Daemon¿, then they likewise belong on a ¿must see¿ list. While we¿re at it, someone might send a copy to the people at the Biography Channel, just to give them an idea of how it should be done. Oscar O. Veterano
