Schumann’s two sets of Études were the result of hearing Paganini play in Frankfurt in April 1830. From these early works to his last days in the asylum at Endenich, where he composed a piano accompaniment to the 24th Caprice, Paganini was still working his magic on Schumann.
Brahms, also fascinated by Paganini, composed his Variations on a theme by Paganini for the great virtuoso pianist Karl Tausig. Brahms takes the 24th Caprice and turns his Studies for Pianoforte: Variations on a theme by Paganini into a tour de force: ‘Hexenvariationen’ as Clara Schumann called them. Tausig loved them, writing to Brahms, “I had a devil of a time with them… everyone considers them unplayable.”
