Some two centuries back, a wild-man violinist named Niccolò Paganini roamed Europe, veritably freaking people out with his electrifying virtuosity. Some just assumed he'd sold his soul to the Devil for chops like that. He set the standard for performance practice for generations to come, and he left behind a large body of work - most notably his 24 Caprices for Solo Violin, regarded as among the most dazzling and challenging pieces ever written for violin.

Enter Eric Silberger -- Tchaikovsky Competition prize winner and master of the high-quality live stream. He's the man for the job, no doubt. Last month, he heroically performed all 24 Caprices, end-to-end, for a West Coast crowd to staggering effect, and this Saturday night, he's bringing the show to more easterly time zones.

The performance clocks in at just over an hour and it is really a sight (and some sound) to behold.

Our pre-concert Zoom starts at 7.30pm EDT, then it's off for an 8pm live-stream, and then it's back to Zoom for a post-game Q&A with our exhausted hero.

Can't wait to see you all there!
