[Accardo observes all the repeat markings; total playing time: 93'56''. Note, however, that in order to accomodate all 24 Caprices onto a single disc the DG 'Signature' LP and 'Galleria', 'Collectors Edition' & 'Critic's Choice' CD releases have the repeats in Nos 2 – 8, 10, 12 – 14, 18, 20 & 23 edited out; e.g. total playing time of 'Galleria' CD: 74'36''. The 'Classikon' and 'Panorama' CDs are likewise affected by edits]

 

Accardo, Salvatore (violin)

CD: La Repubblica / Sabato Musica (Volume 1: Salvatore Accardo – Paganini) [See note below]

Recorded 17–19 February 2002 (Palazzo Affaitati sede del Museo Civico 'Ala Ponzone' e del Museo Stradivariano, Cremona, Italy)

[Foné SACD: cover states 'First Complete Recording'; Accardo observes all the repeat markings, total playing time 93'29''; the first twelve Caprices are played on a Stradivari of 1715 ('Il Cremonese') and the remainder on a Stradivari of 1727 ('Hart' ex Francescatti). La Repubblica CD: in order to accomodate all 24 Caprices onto a single disc the repeats in Nos 2, 4, 6 – 8, 10 & 12 are edited out giving a total playing time of 78'03''; oddly, neither CD or case states any catalogue number – my guess is that the CD may have been issued free with an Italian classical music magazine]
