Virtuosity as Rhetoric: Agency and Transformation in Paganini's Mastery of the Violin.
Palmer, David L.
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v84 n3 p341-57 Aug 1998
Contributes to scholarship on the rhetorical nature of human agency. Examines in detail a concert by Nicolo Paganini, the 19th-century violinist whose striking expressive force functioned rhetorically to expand ideas concerning music and human agency and to evoke a unique sense of "communitas" by embodying the ideals of the Romantic era.
