Violin/Piano duet

July 13, 2005 at 05:08 AM · I played Ave Maria with another person at the piano and my friend on the violin. It was very popular at the concert, even though it was very simple to play.

I already know of Greensleeves, but I was looking for maybe other very nice ones?

Please excuse my english =u_u=;

and violin and piano parts are very well balanced

July 23, 2007 at 04:37 PM · Thought I would bump this thread up - I am looking for a 10 minute violin / piano duet for an upcoming performance. I've made a note of the posts so far but wanted to know if there were more suggestions. I'm really looking for something more along the lines of a duet - not violin solo with piano accompaniment. Thanks!

Especially look at the violin/piano sonatas. It depends on the skill level of you two, but the Handel sonatas should be OK - and a couple of the Mozarts are very nice. And then there are hundreds of others by other composers.

July 23, 2007 at 05:14 PM · Thanks! I'll check out the website. If it helps, the pianist is a professional performer/teacher, and I guess I'd call myself an advanced amateur.
