Ingolf Turban's commitment to the work of Niccolò Paganini has achieved critical acclaim, such as his 2006 performance with the New York Philharmonic, the complete recordings of the six violin concertos (Telos Records) and in the TV documentary "Paganini's Secret" (merkur.tv). In 2005, Turban founded the chamber orchestra "I Virtuosi di Paganini".
His extensive repertoire of all musical styles has been documented on over 40 CD productions. Many works, for which he presented highly acclaimed premier recordings, have now found their way into the common concert repertoire.
