After the death of Paganini, a large number of musicians tried to seize his title of "violin of the Devil", but none succeeded so convincingly as the Spanish Pablo de Sarasate. His incredible violin technique impressed his audience from his first appearances in public. It is therefore not surprising that very virtuosic compositions, tailor-made, were written to them. Composed in 1877 and marrying the shape of a large Hungarian czardas, the "Bohemian Airs" include all the tricks of the violin-playing "daredevil" and their execution remains a challenge for all great violinists. For this Urtext edition, we are fortunate to have been able to call upon Ingolf Turban, one of the current violin magicians, who has been responsible for fingering and bowing.
