Accolay's Concerto in A minor (1868) is "one of the most enduring of all tutorial violin concertos, it is still regularly studied today. Though its executant demands are slight, this agreeably spontaneous piece highlights one of music's great paradoxes - that expressive power often derives from the simplest of technical means."- from liner notes for Itzhak Perlman's recording of "Concertos from My Childhood."  This transcription by Robert Klotman scores instruments commonly found in a school setting.  Includes piano reduction for rehearsal only.
