And here is the legendary violinist Heifetz playing Caprice 24.
The top comment on this YouTube link reads:
"Every year, there is a Bieber, every decade there are the Beatles, every century, there is a Heifetz, every millennium there is a Paganini."
Too kind to Bieber and too harsh on the Beatles but about right other than that I think!
Paganini's Caprice 24 has fascinated composers (including such greats as Rachmaninoff, Brahms, Liszt and Schumann to name but a few) for the last 200 years and I found myself drawn to it also.
