In the chamber hall of the Philharmonic in Szczecin together with the String Quintet, the performer the pieces released on the violinist's latest album "No.24", which is a tribute to the works of Niccolo Paganini.
The repertoire on the album that I am presenting to you today is an escape from a world full of hustle and bustle, chaos, obscuring what is beautiful, clean and valuable. The songs on this album are the essence of violin playing. They are full of lyricism, nostalgia, tenderness, virtuosity at the highest level, love. Every time I perform a program recorded on this album, the audience applauds me. People approach me with tears of emotion and a smile on their faces, both connoisseurs of classical music and laymen. It was the reactions of people at my concerts that prompted me to record this album, and the album is the most beautiful reminder of these sublime, priceless moments emphasizes Mariusz Patyra.
