Cecil Effinger’s Rondino is short work that is suitable for a recital as well as Solo and Ensemble competitions.  It is a work that is appropriate for younger players.  It has a few low E’s (E3), a low B (B2), and several high G’s (G5), all of which are attainable by a young performer.  For the more advanced player, this work offers the opportunity to program a reprieve into an otherwise-heavy recital program.  The piece requires some attention to detail regarding articulation, and plenty of support to execute smooth slurs and create long phrases.
