Beethoven's Cello Sonata in G minor, Op. 5, No. 2, was dedicated to Frederick William II of Prussia, a nephew of Frederick the Great. Frederick William was anything but Prussian in character; he was not a success as a ruler; he was not a disciplinarian; he was a bon viveur and an enthusiastic patron of music. Himself a cellist, he commissioned Beethoven to write two sonatas for him. He had previously commissioned Mozart to write the three famous ' Roi de Prusse ' quartets for him, in' which the cello plays a prominent part.

The Genoese violinist, Niccolo Paganini , was one of the most astonishing figures of the nineteenth century. His brilliant fiddling, weird appearance, and romantic personality fascinated every class of society throughout Europe.
It was actually believed by many people that he was the Devil's disciple. When he played the 'Witches' Dance' in Vienna, someone in the audience said that he saw the Devil, who bore a striking resemblance to Paganini, guiding the violinist's fingers and bow. This fantastic story gained such credence that in 1828 he was obliged to publish a letter from his mother to prove that he was of human origin.
