Review By Philip Anson,Naxos,

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.
