One of the most distinguished violinists of his time, Bériot was the father of the Franco-Belgian school of violin playing. His ten violin concertos display the youthful élan and high spirits of early romanticism.

Bériot combined elements of the French School charm and taste with the new pyrotechnics pioneered by Paganini.

Bériot’s Concertos Nos. 2 and 3 show the immediate influence of Paganini with their brilliant displays of virtuosity and operatic melodies, while the Concerto No. 5 displays a more playful side.

Fanfare

““[Beriot’s music] combines Paganinian brilliance with operatic suavity and, at times, an almost carnival-inspired gaiety… it represents a stylistic step into the future, in fact into Vieuxtemps’s violinistic language and that of Wieniawski and of the many who would follow them.”

Gramophone Magazine

Awards Issue 2008

“This isn't profound music but it's appealing and full of interest, and very well served here.”
