3 Reasons to Play Oskar Rieding's Concertino 'in the Hungarian style'
The Concertino is written in one movement starting with a powerful Andante sostenuto introducing us to the concertino's hungarian style temperament. It is followed by a czardas inspired Allegro moderato. I especially love the orchestra interlude - I call it the singing orchestra part! The concertino continues with the solo violin continuing the czardas (there is a delightful harmonic to be played - probably your first!) only to return to the Andante sostenuto. The concertino ends with a hearty czardas!
Oskar Rieding lived in Budapest for many years, teaching the violin and leading the orchestra of the National Opera House. This concertino is a result of his love and fascination for Hungarian music.
Although the concertino belongs to the easy violin concertos, it is quite virtuoso. The student must have a good command of the 1st and 3rd position as well as a good sense of rhythm. You must also show a strong character in getting the czardas right!
It's a music piece you will enjoy practicing and playing. Your audience will also love it, they will tell you you are a virtuoso violinist, so practice well!
