Concertino in Hungarian Style a minor op. 21
With this one-movement Concertino, Oskar Rieding turns to already advanced students of the violin. Aside from playing in third position, it also requiresa considerable degree of dexterity and mastery of bowing. The “Hungarian style” mentioned in the title alludes to the fact that Prussian-born Rieding gave more than three decades of service at Budapest’s National Theatre. Its marked rhythms recall Hungarian folk music and will appeal to more spirited young violinists. The Slovenian Rieding specialist Maruša Zupancic contributes an interesting preface on the little-known composer to this Urtext edition; the markings in the solo part are providedby the experienced violinist Evelyne Grüb-Trauer.
