Paganini definitions

WordNet (r) 3.0 (2005)

n
1: Italian violinist and composer of music for the violin (1782-1840) [syn: Paganini, Niccolo Paganini]

Merriam Webster's

biographical name Niccolò 1782-1840 Italian violinist

Britannica Concise

Italian violinist and composer. A prodigy, he joined an orchestra by age 9. He toured Italy 1810-28, renowned as its greatest violin virtuoso in the world though dismissed by serious musicians as a showman. In the 1820s he underwent mercury treatment for syphilis, which left him looking romantically haggard. His long-deferred international tour (1830-34), by which time his expressiveness was equal to his technique, created frenzy, and some believed he had made a pact with the devil for his amazing talent. Paganini greatly extended violin technique; his numerous compositions include 24 Caprices for solo violin and six violin concertos.
