Oskar Rieding (1846–1916) is known to all young violinists for his easy-to-play concertos for violin and piano, of which opp. 34 to 36 remain entirely in first position. In op. 36 catchy melodies are coupled with first technical difficulties such as eighth-note arpeggios, 16th-note runs and chromaticism. These appear in small measures throughout the entire work. The Concerto in D major is well-suited for younger student recitals.
