I own a pretty extensive collection of violin music on CD, plus have a Spotify subscription, but the recordings I'm familiar with are mostly concertos and the most commonly-recorded recital works -- basically the stuff that gets recorded by big-name artists.
But in the last decade, there's been a large number of new recordings of less common violin works that are now readily available on online music services. It's hard to discover these recordings, though, unless you know what to look for. I want to broaden my own listening, and get some new ideas for what I want to play in the future.
What are your favorite pieces of recital-appropriate repertoire (sonatas, works with piano, solo repertoire), that are not warhorses learned by most students / extensively recorded by major artists? (i.e., no Thais, Tambourin Chinois, Franck sonata, etc.)
Alternatively, what are your favorite collections of short works? (CD compilations)
