Niccolò Paganini

October 27, 1782 - May 27, 1840
In addition to being the most revered violin virtuoso of the 19th century, Niccolò Paganini was also a violist, guitarist, and composer. Although many of his compositions were written as concert vehicles for himself, some of his works have taken on a life of their own by way of transcriptions for the piano by other composers, including Johannes Brahms and Franz Liszt.
