Hummm, VM recording hardcore Paganini scores sutch as the caprices or one of the concertos ... well .. i m not so sure about that. I think the result would be avrage at the very best. Her sound and tight range she developped since "China girl" simply wont do the job. In my opinion her classical skil...
