ON THIS DAY | Violinist & Composer Niccolo Paganini Died in 1840

Paganini is remembered as one of the most celebrated violin virtuosi of all time and as a pillar of modern violin technique

Italian violin virtuoso and composer Niccolo Paganini died on this day in 1840.

Paganini composed his own works with which he performed exclusively at his concerts. His 24 Caprices for Solo Violin, as well as La Campanella from his Second Violin Concerto, are some of his best-known compositions. He inspired distinguished composers such as Franz Liszt, Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Witold Lutosławski to write works for various instruments around his themes.
