13 Oskar Rieding Concertino in the Hungarian Style in A Minor Op. 21

30 second preview

Oskar Rieding and Ferdinand Küchler wrote a number of delightful easy violin concertos among which the Concertino 'in the Hungarian style' has a special place.

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!

Performers are Bibi Pelić, violin and the Atlantis Orchestra Prague conducted by Vitêzslav Podrazil.
