Notated on a large oblong octavo leaf (167 x 227 mm.) and inscribed "A mon collègue [!] et bon ami A. Fischer... Camillo Sivori Paris 17 Février 1882."
Very slightly foxed; slight abrasion to right-hand edge.
Sivori "studied violin with Paganini's former teacher Giacomo Costa... Between October 1822 and May 1823 Paganini was in Genoa, and, favourably struck by the young violinist, decided to give him lessons... Paganini regarded Sivori as the only pupil for whose formation he was responsible ('the only person who can call himself my pupil', he wrote in 1828)... His virtuoso repertory was based principally on his own compositions and those of Paganini, but unlike his teacher, Sivori also became an exceptional performer of Classical and early Romantic chamber music... A stylish composer, who displayed a lovely melodic vein, Sivori composed around 60 pieces." Flavio Menardi Noguera in Grove Music Online. Item #16360
