The composer and violinist Henri Vieuxtemps, (1820-1881) impressed Schumann so much that upon hearing the fourteen-year-old violinist, Schumann wrote that Vieuxtemps “holds us in a kind of magic circle that encloses us ...” As one of a long line of master nineteenth- century violinist-composers, a line that stretches from Viotti, Rode, Bériot, and Paganini in the early years of the century to Wieniawski, Kreisler and Ysaÿe at the end, Vieuxtemps was a towering figure among these violinist- composers, and the first to use the full romantic orchestral palette in the composition of his works. Featuring Reto Kuppel on violin.
