We met musicologist Danilo Prefumo for his book presentation that illustrated the most important aspects of Paganini’s human and creative story. He touched on a topic still unknown today and certainly very interesting to the American public: Paganini’s planned tour of the United States. The project, unfortunately, did not come to fruition because Paganini’s worsening health conditions prevented the musician from carrying it out.
Violinist Henry Jackson performed selected pieces by Paganini.
Henry is the 2022 Detroit Symphony Orchestra Civic Youth Ensemble Concerto Competition Winner and member of the Student League program of Tuesday Musicale of Detroit.
The event was hosted at the Anton Art Center, 125 Macomb Place in Mount Clemens, Michigan. The Anton Art Center is Macomb Count’s premier nonprofit arts and culture organization housed in the historic Carnegie Library Building.
