It would be sufficient to list the direct and indirect legacies set off by the 24 Capriccios (amongst which the "simple harmonizations" i.e. the piano accompaniments added by Schumann to a few Capriccios: a singular act of devotion and of affection towards the author-performer to whom he owed the revelation of his authentic musical vocation, after having heard Paganini play at a concert in Frankfurt in 1820) to assess their historical and stylistic importance. Fully justified is the author’s dedication "Alli artisti" (to artists) (as if to say: it is not stuff for amateurs, as opposed to the contemporary Quartets for strings and guitar) with which they were published in 1820, and the role of forerunner that he had in the Romantic virtuoso literature (specifically in relation to the violin, mostly unexpressed since the times of Bach’s Sonatas) which otherwise found especially in the piano the natural means to express itself. Paganini’s ingenious ideas in the Capriccios are astounding and recognizable also by those who do not know the violin technique. But for instrumentalists, the surprising (and problematic) moments are numerous.
