He was born in 1782 and the most common comment one can hear about him is: ” He sold his soul to the devil in order to be able to play so good.
According to some of the information revealed about him, Paganini used to practice at least 10 hours a day and the violin became like a second spoken language to him.
He was not rich enough to allow a good and expensive violin, made by one of the two greatest luthiers of the world: Stradivarius or Guarneri. After many efforts he afforded to buy his favorite violin of all times: a Guarneri made in 1743.
He wrote the hardest piece for violin music ever and he never missed a note. After his death the doctors dissected his hands in order to see if he was born with more cartilage than normal people. On the contrary, it was less. He died in 1840.

Potrivit unor informatii, Paganini obisnuia sa repete la vioara cel putin 10 ore pe zi, acest instrument devenind ca o a doua limba vorbita pentru el.

A scris cele mai grele piese pentru vioara din toate timpurile si nu a ratat vreodata o nota. Dupa moartea sa doctorii i-au disectat mainile pentru a vedea daca acesta s-a nascut cu mai mult cartilagiu decat oamenii normali. Din contra, era mai putin. A murit in 1840.
