For anyone that appreciates violin music it's difficult to beat. It's a beautiful recording of fantastic music. I really enjoy technically difficult violin music and this CD has wow moments. It would be hard for me to imagine anyone not at least appreciating the music on this CD. The technical aspect of it sets it apart from the common understanding of classical music. It's a violin solo along with a piano on some pieces.
I purchased a Paganini box set with some of my Christmas money and have a new appreciation for this recording. The most difficult song (Variations on God Save the King) is by far the most musical sounding version that I've heard on a decent recording. The new box set includes the song, but it sounds more technical than musical. The words horrible and terrible came to mind several times listening to the new recording. It really sounded like the violinist was struggling with just playing the notes and couldn't focus on making music and he is supposted to be a bit of a Paganini "expert." In short, Ning Feng does an amazing job.
