Bériot, Charles-Auguste de

▪ Belgian violinist
born Feb. 20, 1802, Leuven, Belg.
died April 8, 1870, Brussels

      Belgian violinist and composer known for establishing a particular performance style (the Franco-Belgian school) that combined classical elegance with technical virtuosity.

      The student and legal ward of Jean-François Tiby, Bériot was performing publicly by age nine. His Paris and London debuts came in 1826, after a mutually unsatisfying period of instruction at the Paris Conservatory with Pierre Baillot. Returning to Brussels, he was named solo violinist to King William I of The Netherlands. The Revolution of 1830 brought an end to the appointment and he then toured widely with the singer Maria Malibran (Malibran, Maria), marrying her in 1836. She died only months into the marriage, and he did not resume his career for two years. In 1842 he declined the chair left vacant by Baillot at the Paris Conservatory to serve as head of the violin faculty at the Brussels Conservatory. Impending blindness forced his retirement in 1852. Bériot's compositional and performance style made a synthesis of Niccolò Paganini (Paganini, Niccolò)'s virtuosic fireworks with the elegance and emotional sensitivity of the classic French tradition.
