Viktor Pikaizen

The first time I was in Genoa on the Competition Premio Paganini was in 1965. It was fantastic! Bellissima Genova, brilliant participants to the Competition, outstanding Jury: Cortese, Kogan, De Barbieri, Sizgeti. My victory on the competition, playing the violino grandissimo of N. Paganini - is one of the greatest impressions of my artistic life! The success in the Paganini's competition opened new possibilities to my artistic life, making my career more interesting. My very broad violin repertoire, always includes Paganini, I love the 24th Capriccio, which I played 72 times. It is Enciclopaedia of Art of violino.
