In1830, Schumann visited with his friend Töpken a concert of the legendary violin virtuoso Paganini, whose stupendous mastery of his instrument pushed Robert Schumann to further diligence with the working on his piano technical studies. Clara Wieck met Paganini the year before in his concert at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig on 5 October 1829.
