About

Henry Vieuxtemps was a towering figure in the line of 19th-century violinist-composers, receiving admiration from Wagner, Chopin and Berlioz. A virtuoso in the Paganini tradition, Vieuxtemps was also one of the first to employ a full Romantic orchestral palette in his concertante works and to imbue them with a true ‘symphonic’ conception, as these examples show. They include the Duo brillant, op.39 – a dramatic and expressive mini double concerto for violin and cello, the bravura caprice Old England, op.42, and the Air varié, op.6, with its rich lyricism, four variations and dashing coda.
