Paganini? Really? He really wasnt much of a composer.
If you are going for technically difficult violin music with heart its either Bartok or Ysaye for the win.
Im also a fiddler.
Beethoven violin concerto is one of the best pieces ever written (as is the Bach Chaconne).
All of the below wrote for most insturments, all wrote for orchestra, and all wrote some of finest string music every concieved.
1. Shostakovich
2. Bartok
3. Bach
4. Beethoven
5. Messiaen

To round out the top 10....
6. Brahms
7. Debbusy
8. Ravel
9. Stravinsky

Mozart is a great composer

1. Beethoven (on the back of the 9th alone - had he not written anything else, the 9th by itself is IMO, worthy of this slot.)
2. Bach
3. Haydn
4. Mozart
5. Tchaikovsky

Paganini can be very beautiful I you are in to that sort of thing. Also, Mozart is dead by the way.

Played viola for almost 20 years in my early days and I'd say this is my list already posted.... just might put Stravinsky in at #5 ... but I do love Tchaikovsky.... great picks....
