(1802 - 1870)

A pupil of the Italian violinist Viotti, Bériot became one of the most distinguished players of his time; he was also the creator of the Franco-Belgian school of violin playing that was so important in the 19th century. He spent much of his teaching career in Brussels, where he died in 1870.


Bériot’s 10 violin concertos are known to most players, in the practice studio if not in the concert hall. The so-called ‘Military’ Concerto No. 1 in D is of particular interest, as well as his popular Spanische Weisen for violin duet.
