Provost's Intermezzo is nice.

Hello Madi,

Mendelssohn's violin concerto in e minor has a very beutiful 2nd movement.

Here is a link of it being played.

And here is a link to the sheet music.

Best of luck in your search,

Ditto for second movement in Bruch concerto in G and second movement of Mozart concerto in G.

Also: Melodie by Gluck (Kreisler version); girl with the flaxen hair; ave maria (Gounod or Schubert);  Adagio by Mozart... I could go on :)

Try the Grave by Benda, it's the second movement of his violin concerto.  You can find it played by Yuri Bashmet on viola (YouTube).  Good luck finding the score. *grin*

Second movement of the Tchaikovski, aka "Canzonetta"

Second movement of the Wieniawski, aka "Romance."

Now that I think of it, Anne-Sophie Mutter has an album called "Romance."  Anything on there.

I like Elgar Chanson de Matin. Also look into various French impressionist things.

Dvorak's Romance Op 11.

[Edit: technically appreciably more difficult than the Paganini Cantabile mentioned in the next post] 

September 4, 2011 at 11:24 PM ·

Paganini Cantabile. Check out Kogan on youtube. Not too technically difficult - a notch about Meditation from Thais maybe.

September 5, 2011 at 04:26 AM ·

I suggest Schuberts Ave Maria and E.Elgars Salut d' Amour..

September 5, 2011 at 05:27 AM ·

Raff "Cavatina" is also nice. A friend of mine introduced me to it recently and it is always a hit.

Glazunov Meditation.

Romance from "The Gadfly" by Shostakovich:

Chopin Nocturne No.20 in C# minor transcribed by Nathan Milstein:

Also check out Joshua Bell's album called "Romance of the violin."

Pablo de Sarasate: Balada, Op.31


September 6, 2011 at 03:45 AM ·

Good point Patrick. Reminds meof

Sarasate- Adious Montanas Mios.

Glorious piece,

Maybe "Air" by Aaron Jay Kernis:

I would also suggest the second movement of Corigliano's sonata for violin and piano:

Amd perhaps the second movement of Prokofiev's second violin

 I don't think anything gets more romantic than the Beethoven Romances.  That's just my personal taste.:)

 My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion.

September 7, 2011 at 04:27 AM ·

I`m Dion a threwin up

by Rabbi Burns.

 J.S Bach - Arioso, sinfonium from the cantata -  "Ich steh mit einem Fus im Grabe"

 I'm told some people use it for weddings, others for funerals. Either way it's just beautiful.

September 11, 2011 at 04:37 AM ·

Debussy/Heifetz-Beau Soir


Elgar-Salut d'Amour


I second the suggestion of the Raff Cavatina it's a lovely piece

 John Williams- The Chairman's Waltz from Memoirs of a  Geisha

Wieniawski-Romance (2nd movement from Violin Concerto #2)



September 11, 2011 at 04:49 AM ·

Muskrat Love by the Captain and Tenille. Truly one of the all time great romantic pieces.

September 29, 2011 at 01:14 PM ·

The Romance from Shostakovich's "Gadfly" Suite. It's got a lovely solo violin part.

We're playing that Suite at our next concert in November, but the parts are not expected to arrive until about a week before. Hmm.
