Violinist, composer and conductor Leo Portnoff (1875-1940) was a leading
violin pedagogue who composed a number of violin concertos to help us develop a good violin technique.
The Concertino in E minor, Op.13 is a delightful music piece you will enjoy playing. Although you can play the concertino only in the 1st position, Portnoff did have in mind that you play some parts in the 3rd position. It sounds more professional. You are not a beginner anymore! Beautiful, sweet melodies in the first two movements, a joyful dance-like third movement make it an exciting, happy concertino to play. This
concertino will help you develop a good sense of rhythm and phrasing.
Good luck with your violin studies and have fun playing this concertino!
