Violinist Sean Lee and pianist Peter Dugan will be performing Schumann's arrangement of Paganini's famous 24 Caprices on January 27, 2022, at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, for the first time in its 52-year history.
"I didn't know that these arrangements existed until several years after my initial study of the Caprices!" violinist Sean Lee told The Violin Channel. "I was listening to various recordings of the Caprices out of curiosity and came upon a recording of this arrangement by surprise.
"I was thrilled because I love Robert Schumann's music, but also because of the idea of one great composer collaborating with another great composer's work in this way," he added. "Having more colors and harmony to inspire the ear is a source of musical energy and inspiration."
