American Record Guide, June 2003

"Takako Nishizaki seems to have the technique for this demanding music, and Alfred Walter and his plucky band supply estimable support. It is difficult not to be enthusiastic about this release; it's a welcome introduction to a little-known composer."

Philip Anson

Though short at 50 minutes, this disk of rousing concertos is recommended. Belgian composer Charles de Beriot's music is delightfully lush and melodic. Violin Concerto No. 1 "Military" (1829) combines technical virtuosity with the charm of ballet music. Violin Concerto No. 2 (1855) reminds one of Bellini's bel canto operas. Violin Concerto No. 3 (1859) brings us closer to the seriousness of Tchaikovsky. Violinist Takako Nishizaki plays with complete poise and command and a grateful tone. Originally issued on the high priced Marco Polo label in 1990, this disc is now a steal on Naxos's regular label.
