Biography

The veteran Italian violinist and conductor Salvatore Accardo is one of the most accomplished virtuosos of his generation, famous for his groundbreaking recordings of the complete Paganini violin concertos and other solo works. Born in 1941 in Turin, he leapt to fame in 1958 by winning the Paganini Competition in Genoa. Noted for his exquisite, beautiful playing and a technical wizardry carried off with disarming nonchalance, he quickly cemented his reputation as the preeminent Paganini specialist through his acclaimed recordings and concert appearances. He moved over to recording the mainstream repertoire in the 1970s (thanks to Philips) and has an extensive and rich discography spanning his career, numbering over 50 recordings on various labels including Philips, DG, EMI, and Sony Classical.
