Opus 19 Fantasia by Luigi Legnani

Opus 19 Fantasia by Luigi Legnani (1790-1877)

Luigi Rinaldo Legnani was an Italian guitarist, singer, composer and luthier. He is perhaps best known for his 36 Caprices for the guitar, which cover all the major and minor keys, and which were probably inspired by Paganini’s 24 Caprices for the violin. He and Paganini were friends from the 1830s; while it was once thought that he and Paganini performed together in public, this is no longer accepted. After the 1850s Legnani retired from active performance and became an instrument maker, concentrating on guitars and violins. The “Legnani model” guitar was popular in Central Europe through the middle of the nineteenth century.
