A beautiful work - especially the first movement which has the magnificent hatikvah in the middle of the piece. Difficulty range about Grade 5 level, 1st and 3rd positions. Rhythms are catchy and not difficult as the same rhythm is often repeated.

A great piece.
The Israeli Concertino is a wonderful performance piece. Not terribly challenging, but very fun to play and hear. It has a good variety of fast, exciting sections and beautiful, lyrical sections. There are no huge technical challenges besides some quick passages, double stops, a few harmonics, and syncopated rhythms, though...
