Violinist and composer Oskar Rieding (1840-1918) was a leading violin pedagogue who composed a number of violin concertos to help us develop a good violin technique.
The Concerto in D major, Op.36 is a big favourite of mine. Less played than the B minor, it takes us back to the spirit of 19th century Vienna. Beautiful, sweet melodies in the first two movements, a joyful dance-like third movement make it an exciting, happy concerto to play. It is written in the 1st position requiring a good left hand technique. In the 1st movement you will find many sixteenths! This concerto will help you develop a good sense of rhythm, you might use the help of the metronome.
Good luck with your violin studies and have fun playing this concerto!
