What piece is this?

July 23, 2020, 5:27 AM · I've been watching the documentary about Janine Jansen on YouTube (amazing documentery, you should watch it :)). You can see it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UD_AZH0cFN0&t=3065s

Most of the pieces she's is playing I know, but on 50'15 (at 8 years old) she is playing something that I recognize but don't know what it is anymore. So frustrating! It keeps ons singing in my head, but what is it. Anyone of you who recognize it?
Thanks!

July 23, 2020, 5:54 AM · Sorry listened to the wrong bit. No idea.
July 23, 2020, 5:59 AM · Haha no problem! It's so frustrating when you recognize a piece, but don't know what it is anymore.
July 23, 2020, 8:31 AM · Not sure if this helps, but immediately before the Brahms she's playing Mozart's sonata in E minor for piano and violin - can't remember the K number. I don't recognise the pieces before that.

July 23, 2020, 3:23 PM · That's a nice piece; I have no idea what it is. Note that the link above takes you to later in the video.
July 24, 2020, 8:32 AM · I think what Nikki is after is what's on immediately before the Mozart E-minor sonata 2nd movement. I'd guess it was by a 20th century English composer, and meant for students.
