Meet the violinist who sold his soul to the devil
If you've read Manderley Academy, you know Faye's favourite musician is Niccolò Paganini. Born in Genoa, Italy, in 1782, his mother made a pact with the Devil upon his birth - if the Devil made Paganini a great violinist, she would offer up his soul.
