Performance of the First Concerto for violin and orchestra by Paganini
The public directed its attention to the Russian violinist Maxim Fedotov. He played in the style, and also his appearance was resembling, of the Italian violinist - magician, executing melodious delicate Cantilena and performing brilliantly virtuoso passages, then finally demonstrating full control of himself in the double flageolets. The burst of applauses inspired him to play two solo caprices as an encore.
