One of the great virtuosos in the history of the violin, Charles-Auguste de Bériot was also an accomplished composer for his instrument.
The compositions in which he explores the technical resources of the violin combine an understanding of the instrument with very considerable lyrical gifts.
The 12 Scènes ou Caprices pour le Violon, 9 Studies and Prélude ou Improvisation for solo violin are both works of great charm and study material of the highest order, using all the resources at the command of the romantic violinist.
