The brilliant young Japanese violinist Tatsuki Narita has the Tartini Devil's Trill on a very fine album, only available on tape, through UltraAnalogue tapes in Canada. The tape (15ips 2 track) is amazing sounding and also includes Kreisler Prelude and Allegro and the Sarasate Carmen Fantasy. The pianist is Yun-Yang Lee. Highly recommended if you have the ability to play 15ips 2 track tape.

Interesingly, I came across your post on the Devil's Trill... I'm happy to tell you I've just released the tape Larry's talking about on Digital Download along with Tatsuki's 24 Paganini Caprices recordings...

In 2016 he played a live concert of the 24 Caprices of Paganini... with 2 intermissions, it was an unbelievable feat, never played in a live concert...

That video us here:

. He's playing gut strings in these recordings, true to Paganini's time...

We also made a "studio" recording of the 24 Caprices, which has a slightly softer, more musical sound...it is these studio recordings in the downloads.

The 4 downloads are:
1) Paganini Caprices No.1-8
2) Paganini Caprices No.9-18
3) Paganini Caprices No.19-24, Sarasate - Habanera
4) Violin Favourites: Kreisler - Prelude & Allegro, Tartini - Devil's Trill, Sarasate - Carmen Fantasy

Violin Favourites was also played on gut strings... amazing performances!
