Many a word could be used to describe the music of Paganini; exuberant, powerful, playful, singing… Having heard this so-called “devil” of the violin play himself must have been indescribable. The audience was so taken aback by his performances, his technique and virtuosity being far beyond anything they had ever witnessed before, that they simply did not believe their eyes nor ears. He himself said that the violin was his mistress, but the guitar his true master. While one can hear a clear influence of Italian opera in Paganini, in Spohr's music a richness of sound is brought to life. He invented the violin chin rest (where performers place their chin) and rehearsal letters in the musician's scores, and made popular the use of a conducting baton. Spohr played an important role in the evolution of violin playing and his popularity as a composer and conductor at moments even rivalled that of Beethoven.
