Tariq Harb Plays Legnani Caprices

Tariq Harb performs the 36 Caprices Op. 20 by Luigi Legnani (1790–1877). This comes via Harb’s fantastic YouTube Channel. Harb is in the process of recording all of the Caprices so go subscribe to his channel to see the rest as they are posted. I’ll also update this page as he goes. I wrote him saying that he was freaking me out with how fast and well he’s presenting these works. He mentioned that he might be making educational lessons for them and putting out an edition so we can all look forward to that in the future. The 36 caprices for guitar may have been inspired by Paganini’s Twenty-four Caprices for violin, Op. 1. All the major and minor keys are present in his caprices making them an important collection for the guitar which rarely ventures outside of the regular keys. Bonus points for the Douglass Scott guitar!
