Edited: June 5, 2017, 1:52 PM · Besides the Violin Concerto, Romances, and piano/violin sonatas, are there any other Beethoven compositions that feature a solo violin? Did he write any choral works that have violin solos?

6 German Dances, WoO 42
6 National Airs with Variations, Op.105
10 National Airs with Variations, Op.107
Rondo for Violin and Piano, WoO 41
12 Variations on 'Se vuol ballare', WoO 40

For instance, there are a few piano pieces with WoO numbers that are not unlike Mozart or Haydn - the mature Beethoven of piano sonatas 1-32 had yet to arrive.
