The violin pupil can be accompanied either by the violin teacher (as a violin duet), or with piano. The optional alternative piano accompaniments are by Heidi Rolfe.

"I can still remember the thrill I felt as a child of 8 when my violin teacher introduced me to my first concertino. Learning, playing and eventually mastering the famous Küchler Concertino in D major made me feel privileged and grown-up, as if I were joining a very special club.

That was a long time ago, yet for me concertinos still hold a distinctive place in the teaching repertoire. Having now taught the violin for the last thirty years and seen how happily my pupils respond to learning duets - that distinctive sense of enjoyment at playing with an adult, the improvement of intonation and tone production, the liveliness of the lesson - I have composed three new concertinos, inspired by the duet form.

Taking three great keys for the violin - G, D and A minor, I have endeavoured to combine emotionally engaging and technically educational music in the 'Olden Style'. Uniquely, I have written a second violin part for the teacher to play alongside their pupil's part and there is also a piano accompaniment for use alternatively in concert settings.

I very much hope that these concertinos prove as popular and as helpful as the series of duets in my previously published books, Sounds of a Rainbow and, that they ignite that sense of wonderment and purpose I experienced while playing the Kuchler, all those years ago."
