This piece highlights the violin players' use of their first and third fingers, while leaving the second in the air. The main melody, presented in measure 49, delivers this concept. The title reflects the use of fingers 1 and 3, which is found particularly in the rhythmic
motif illustrated in measure 67. Students will enjoy the spirited style and driving energy of this "winning" composition.
