The Belgian Charles Auguste de Bériot (1802-1870) was not only a violinist but also a teacher and composer. He composed a number of concertos. His Concerto no. 9 in A minor , published in 1859, is likewise a favourite 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. The Editor Kurt Sassmannshaus is a world-famous violin teacher with a professorship in Cincinnati (Ohio, USA). He is also the founder of the Great Wall Music Academy, an international summer camp for young string players in China. He continues the family tradition of Early Start on the Violin , founded by his father Egon Sassmannshaus and published by Bärenreiter with editions in German and English. The series Bärenreiter's Concert Pieces includes works for solo strings, usually the violin, but also viola and cello, all with piano accompaniment.
