Tune of the Day: Andante by Paganini
This Andante is the first movement of a Sonata for Violin and Guitar by the famous Italian virtuoso Niccolò Paganini. It was published in Milan in 1820 as the sixth and last sonata of his Op. 3. Like those of Op. 2, the Op. 3 sonatas are brief, two-movement works of the charming, docile variety meant not for public performance but for private.
The Sonata No. 6 in E minor is the only one of the Op. 3 sonatas to have achieved any real fame; in fact, it has become very well-known as a showpiece and encore.
Thanks to André for suggesting this piece!
