In 1896 The Strad described Charles Auguste de Bériot, whose playing created
a sensation in London and Paris, as ‘the founder of the modern Franco-Belgian
[violin] school’. His Violin Concertos include plenty of innovative features, such
as ricochet bowing, double-stops and harmonics. These techniques and other
innovations in formal structure are, however, all in the service of expressive
communication and stylish elegance. The romantic Scène de ballet is perhaps
Bériot’s best known work, while the Air Varié, Op. 5 follows a long tradition of
writing variations on popular themes.

Winner of the Montreal International Violin Competition,
where she also picked up all the other ‘best performance’
awards, Ayana Tsuji is one of the most exciting young
artists to emerge in recent years. This is her highly anticipated
début album for Naxos.

Writing on Bériot’s Violin Concertos 2, 3, & 5 (8.570360), Gramophone considered that “these three
works, dating from the 1830s and ‘40s, show Bériot successfully integrating
showy, Paganini-style flights of fancy into a softer, more elegant idiom,”
MusicWeb International adding that “if you have a penchant for fireworks
and songful concertos of the Paganinian era then these will come as
welcome visitors to your deck.”
