The Belgian Charles Auguste de Bériot (1802-1870) was not only a violinist but also a teacher and composer. His "Concerto no. 9 in A minor", is a favorite with more advanced students. Julia Fischer played it with verve at the early age of eight. The piece stands out with seemingly virtuosic short passages, varied rhythms and a slight Hungarian touch.
