    Looking for classical pieces for duo Piano and Violin to play

    Hello,

    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

    Cesar Franck's Sonata fo Violin and Piano in A.
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Hi, I kind of tried that already I also went to our library to listen to plenty of cd's of violin - piano duo's, but unfortunately, I can't really estimate wether those pieces are too difficult for her.
    So I was hoping someone could share with me some pieces judging by the pieces we already played together. (like corno dolce, I will definitely check that Franck Sonata)

    There is a plethora of 'public domain' music for violin and piano that can be found here on IMSLP.

    Since all scores are downloadable and in PDF format, it should be easy to pick something that is in your comfort level
