Charles De Beriot (1802-1870) is a French violinist/composer wrote many violin litterature including ten violin concertos. I’m sure many students learn De Berio’s violin concerto no.9 in a minor, which can be found in the Solos for Young Violinists, Vol.4

His works are very good for students in order to develp musicality and violin tecnique of Romantic style, before one starts to study major violin concertos.
