Paganini's Daemon

Nicola Paganini (1782 - 1840) was a true "Rock Star" for his time and was said to be possessed by the devil. I watched this excellent (9 part) documentary last night and now have a new respect for the Italian violinist, and composer. Some of the segments are nice and short, and the music is amazing:
