Oskar Rieding’s Concertino op. 21 uses 1 st and 3 rd position exclusively. Hungarian echoes in the Andante sostenuto on the high and low strings of the violin and extensive semiquaver (sixteenth-note) passages in the Allegro moderato require basic dexterity in the left hand combined with frequent use of accented bowing in the right hand. The edition contains a solo violin part and a piano reduction for the accompanist.
The series “ Bärenreiter’s Easy Concertos” is edited by Kurt Sassmannshaus , the internationally-renowned violin teacher and co-author of the Sassmannshaus violin school tradition. His forewords introduce these little gems and include tips for successful first concerts.
The editions form an ideal continuation of the Sassmannshaus violin school tradition; they can be used in parallel from the third volume onwards or alongside any violin method.
The series will be continued and will introduce the student to more demanding repertoire with an increasing level of difficulty.
