Frank Proto's Paganini in Metropolis draws its inspirations from the flamboyant showpieces composed for the violin by Niccolo Paganini, specifically the Caprice No. 24. The work completes a series that Proto has written for three unique virtuosos - Trumpeter Doc Severinsen (Capriccio di Niccolo), Double Bassist François Rabbath (Nine Variants on Paganini) and finally Paganini in Metropolis for Clarinetist Eddie Daniels. In February, 2002 Eddie Daniels premiered the Paganini in Metropolis for Clarinet and Wind Symphony with the University of Texas Wind Ensemble conducted by Jerry Junkin.
