Manrico Padovani - Violin

Described by “The Strad” Magazine as “Violin Hero”, Manrico Padovani is the first swiss violinist who performed live in concert the complete cycle of the 24 caprices op. 1 for violin solo by N. Paganini.

“Forceful lyricist”, „Enchanting, bewitching violin”, „A rising star”, „Devil’s fiddler”, “Wizard of the violin” are only a few of the words used by the critics to describe the emotions stirred up by Manrico Padovani during his performances distinguished by a breathtaking skill united to rhythmic tension and an exceptional mastery of the instrument.



Der Schweizer Geiger Manrico Padovani, der vom englichen „The Strad Magazine“ als „Held der Violine“ beschrieben wird, ist der erste Schweizer Violinist in der Geschichte, der den gesamten Zyklus der 24 Capricci Op. 1 von Niccolò Paganini im Konzert aufgeführt hat.

„Eindringlicher Lyriker“, „Teufelsgeiger“, „Eine Violine die bezaubert“, das sind nur einige der Attribute, die Musikkritikern benützen, um die Eindrücke zu beschreiben, die Manrico Padovani mit seinem virtuosen und tiefsinnigen Spiel sowie mit seiner makellosen Technik bei seinen Konzerten hinterlässt.
