“La Campanella” – by Niccolo Paganini

“La Campanella”, also known as the third movement of “Violin Concerto No.2 in B minor, Op.7”, was composed by an Italian violinist Niccolo Paganini in 1826.  In this energetic “Rondo a la clochette”, what stand out are probably its intriguing individualistic melody and special scratching sounds in between.  What’s more, the unprecedented bell-like ranging sounds of solo and orchestral variations are vividly powering all their beauty, and fully interweaving the dynamic harmony and fast-paced rhythm into one another.

Though technically-demanding this complex piece of music requires, beyond doubt, this is the most captivating tune I have ever enjoyed with accompany of different instruments, and still lingering me with fresh springs of sheer delight. ♦
