Paganini Caprice 20

September 22, 2017, 5:24 AM · Most of you will be aware that at some point Paganini annotated a copy of the 24 caprices with dedications. But who was the dedicatee of Number 20? The name is Carlo Gignami, but a quick google only finds him in relation to Paganini - it would be interesting to find out if any one knows who he was!
