This CD is my first exposure to the works of Luigi Legnini (1790-1877), and I must admit it has come as something of a revelation. Legnani was a great friend of Paganini, and indeed there are similarities between these Guitar works and Paganini's own Violin Capriccios, although these works are somewhat more approachable.

There are other recordings of the 36 Capricci on other labels such as Naxos, which may be easier to find.
