I think that basically when one plays some of the Paganini Caprices, such as no. 24 one would play most of it down one octave, or sometimes in the same octave as the original or sometimes down two octaves, and maybe very rarely actually an octave higher than the original. It doesnt really need to be transposed, although the chords in variation 7?--i think thats the one--the variation before the left hand pizzes ...should be rearranged because they are not all playable as written for violin. There is also a Starker transcription in D minor of this caprice with different variations by Bottermund? but in my brief attempts to find a copy I did not see it for sale anywhere--he plays it on the latest Kodaly recording--it's pretty cool...
