The Infant Paganini

Born in Erfurt, the composer Edward Mollenhauer (1827-1914) achieved success in America as a soloist ad teacher. His best-known pieces for young violinists are "The Infant Paganini" and "The Boy Paganini."

The Mollenhauer fantasia "The Infant Paganini" is a charming introduction to early virtuoso techniques. It calls for bowing techniques such as detache, legato, spiccato and arpeggios over three strings. Players are also expected to play harmonics and pizzicato.

This showpiece can be mastered by young cello students who are working with volume 4 of the Sassmannshaus "Early Start on the Cello" and can manage first to fourth position.

  • Popular recital pieces for young violinists and cellists
  • Both works form an ideal continuation of the Sassmannshaus "Early Start" methods
  • Pieces originally scored for violin now also available for the first time for cello
