    Default Looking for classical pieces for duo Piano and Violin to play

    Hello, (hope i'm posting this in the right thread)

    Next year it will be the third year that I'm playing with a girl violinist (I myself play the piano). Because it is vacation for me now, I was looking for some classical pieces to play with our duo next year, but I find it difficult to say if the pieces I find are suitable and not too difficult for her (the violin) too play (because I don't play the violin myself of course).

    To give you any idea of our current level, last two years we played:
    Dvorak - Sonatina Op.100 1st movement
    John Williams - Schindlers list
    Beethoven - Romance Op.50
    Bartok - Romanian Folk Dances no.4 & 6 Sz.56


    If you could give me some suggestions, that would be very helpful

    Thank you,
    JhKreisler

    How 'bout something on the digitaldreamdoor.com list? Others will have to comment on difficulty.

    Will thinking of something more specific later.
    If there is anyone here whom I have not insulted, I beg his pardon.

    It's the greed of huge companies and huge organizations which control life in a kind of a brutal way ... It's gotten worse and worse, somehow, because physical science has given us more and more terrible deadly weapons, and the human spirit has been destroyed in so many cases, so what's the use of having the most powerful country in the world if we have killed the soul.

    How about the Franck Violin Sonata? The fourth movement is especially beautiful and has great interaction between piano and violin.

    Beethovens Kreutzer sonata.
    Winning!

    Epic winning!
    Do you love Ludwig Van Beethovens music?
    Does his life-story/music inspire you?
    Can you strongly relate to the emotions on his music?
