Notes & Reviews:
Complementing the release of Beriot's 'Violin Concertos Nos. 1, 8 & 9' (NXS 8555104) and 'Nos. 2, 3 & 5' (NXS 8570360), this disc presents his equally virtuosic 'Duos concertants' for two violins whose disarming lyricism, cheerful vivacity and Classical three-movement structure mask many formidable technical challenges. Based on themes from Prince Yusupov's once popular 'Ballet Espagnol', Beriot's 'Six Characteristic Duos' add a dash of Iberian sunshine, the two violins imitating guitars, romancing each other, marching together and even dancing a 'fandango' and 'bolero'.Notes & Reviews:
Includes duet(s) for 2 violin by Charles-Auguste de Bériot.
