Russian guitarist Anton Baranov plays Caprice No. 29 from 36 Caprices, Op. 20 by Italian guitarist/composer/singer/luthier Luigi Legnani (1790–1877) on a period replica guitar. This comes via Baranov’s YouTube Channel. These virtuosic caprices were probably inspired by Paganini’s 24 Caprices for the violin. Fantastic playing by Baranov with crisp articulations and excellent right hand work! Difficult indeed but also short and sweet. I like the almost Schubertian accompaniment near the end as well. I recommend this music edition via Sheet Music Plus: 36 Caprices Op. 20 by Legnani (Matarazzo).
