Kinski Paganini


It was crowded, there were just

two places to stand

in the upper echelon, and they

were too expensive for commoners.

Then a figure tread onto the stage

as if it were rising from hell.

His black frock was crumpled,

as though he had slept in it.

The head and the terrible face

with the deformity... the cynical mouth

seemed through the murky lighting

still more corpse-white.

In his motions,

laid an eerie stiffness

and something so clownishly animal,

that the public giggled.

An inerasable figure of deep sadness,

Genius and Hell

left their mark.

He had an imbecilic humility,

that only a morbid pity

held back my laughter.

He scraped along the way

the floor with his foot!

From whom had he copied these contortions?

A mechanical toy?

Were those the eyes of a cursed man,

which are begging for clemency?

Or does behind it lurk

the sneer of a sly curmudgeon?

The vampire with the violin drains us,

if not the blood from the heart,

then the gold from our pockets!

But these thoughts fell silent immediately,

when the wonderful master

set his violin on his chin and began to play.

My God!

Exactly like during that time in Vienna!

So long ago!

I feel the same passion!

The same desire for him!

I said, as the pathetic man

made his ridiculous bow.

Nevertheless, it is impossible not to love him!

When he played, he got an erection.

He was in prison!

Because of murder!

He impregnated a minor and

poisoned her! - He played left-handed!

He played left- AND right-handed!

He wore down a bow each performance?

- His bow is super long!

And he is greatly strained!

- He never gets the chords right!

The strings put themselves out of tune.

- He corrected them while playing!

No one can move a finger so fast while playing! Unbelievable!

See, he is swapping the bow!

When Paganini again began to play,

I nearly almost fell faint.

Whether or not I embroider,



or lay awake,

even in my dreams

I am with you.

But you refuse,

to make me happy.

To flee from Nicolo means

to flee from life.

You are so ugly.

I never even liked you!

Don't think,

I am irresponsible, sweetheart.

Your music causes measureless joy and

desperate desire for you!

My sweetheart,

deliver me from this agony!

I can bear it no longer!

I must go to America and Russia.

I must go to Russia, Achille.

I must go to Russia,

Russia and America.

Russians cry, when they hear music.

Russia and America,

America and Russia.


Papa, let us go away from here.

- Yes, my sweetie, assist me with the running.

Please, Papa, please!

She is the most beautiful girl in the world

but too young ...

No, she does not like any music.

I am thinking of another.

She is also young.

We must go away, Papa.

She is married,

though. Never mind.

Who he probably is?

- The one that has luck! - A red-blooded male!

He looks good!

- How Exciting!

He is gazing at me!

- He is pleasing to me!

This Mr. Paganini is very charming!

With a false wedding-vow,

it fell to him easily, to seduce

this underage girl!

Fiendish seduction

Rape of an underage girl,

cold-blooded brutality...

According to charges, this devil,

this suppleness old man,

bewitched the world

and seduced countless women!

I wish that would be me!

Angiolina became pregnant.

Paganini wanted her to have an abortion.

He said to her that she would have worms,

and nearly poisoned her with a worm cure!

Nicolo's parents were poor.

Malnutr5tiion and illnesses

weakened his strengths from an early age.

He contracted tuberculosis,

which ruined his health altogether.

Despite his millions,
