i'm looking for some american violin repertoire for a recital coming up. i'm looking for pieces for violin and piano (or other instrument) or solo violin, not concertos. some pieces i've been thinking of are:
morton gould: suite for violin and piano
virgil thomson: portraits for violin alone
thomson: portraits for violin and piano
cage: pieces for violin and piano
if anyone knows anything about these pieces or has played them, or if anyone has suggestions for other pieces, i would be thrilled to hear them. also, if anyone knows of a way to listen to a sample of, or the full piece for free, that would be wonderful. i'm in the middle of nowhere for the summer and don't have the money right now to buy lots of cds just to check out rep. thanks!
